Sieve: Vacation not working (My issue resolved!!)

Good news!

I was able to get it working. I had the lines in the wrong order, and that apparently caused sendmail to not recognize the mailer.

Now, the vacation replies are working, and it appears sieve is working well.

Thanks to everyone for their help!

Phew ... sounds weird ...  normally, m4 barfs when there is something
wrong or missing ... please note that I pulled th lines apart, having
the first two well above any "MAILER" lines, and the MAILER(cyrusv2) at
the end ... dunno if that might cause a problem with your setup ...
