Good news!

I'm thinking that is the same issue I have.

I will be trying it out today off hours, and report what I find.

Well, found another post on this ... seems to be that depending on the
way the MTA does the local delivery causes vacation (and only vacation)
to work or not...

Originally, I had this in my .mc file:

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

After replacing this with:

define(`CYRUSV2_MAILER_ARGS',`FILE /var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp')dnl

I finally got vacation replies from Cyrus ...
