Sieve: Vacation not working

See, I'm using this entirely custom deliver script in .procmailrc, and I think that is my problem. I think if Sieve doesn't get a proper from address, it will not reply. The question is how do you know if this is occurring?

You might try different configuration options of that. I've seen searching the web that some people had vacation reply issues with different configurations of the Cyrus mailer(s).

I'm using the cyrus feature

define(`confLOCAL_MAILER', `cyrus')dnl
`define(`CYRUS_MAILER_ARGS', `deliver -e -f $f -m $h -- $u')')

in the mc file, and as the regular sorting seems to work (moving certain
mails to other folders e.g.), as well as storing incoming mail in the
appropriate inboxes, I assume the Cyrus interface as such should be
working fine, as well as the Sieve call ... what puzzles me is that I
don't even see Sieve attempt to deliever anything, at least not locally
- plus I can't seem to find any config file that would contain
definitions about what to do with mails generated by Sieve (like, e.g.,
what Mailserver to use)
