Maintain Vacation replies
Vacation allows for an autoreply email to be sent to every sender of every email received. The sender only gets one vacation autoreply message, even if multiple messages are sent. Emails coming from nefarious sources will also be sent an email.
Vacation needs to be manually activated and deactivated.
Log in to a CSEE UNIX system.
Edit ~/.vacation.msg and write your autoreply message.
Initialize your vacation database with
Edit ~/.forward and make sure it only contains the following, replacing each username with your username
\username, "|/usr/bin/vacation username"
Either delete ~/.forward or return the .forward contents to what it was before changing it when enabling Vacation.
