Hi Ken, sorry for the direct reply ..

I'll give it another go...

sender at dom.ain sends a mail to a at dom.ain and b at dom.ain.

a at dom.ain has a vacation message with email-address B at domain. <<< which 
is wrong but...

sender gets a vacation message from B at dom.ain but that user is NOT away 
and has no vacation message active ...

Better try ? :-)
