Thanks, I found it. Didn't answer my question though, since I can't read 
it. Wanted to see if my test email sent to a user on vacation was read, 
and entered into the database, but for some reason the vacation response 
didn't work, or if it didn't even get that far. Is it possible/likely 
that this could have been corrupted, and that is why I have a user whose 
vacation sieve doesn't work? It seems like this file must be used by all 
users. Is it used for anything besides vacations? What would happen if I 
deleted it?
