Configuring sendmail to return Vacation Messages

Hi all,

Im running a mail server on a Linux Red Hat version 8.0. Im wondering, how does one go about configuring sendmail to return vacation messages to a sender, telling him or her that the receiving party is away on a holiday or is off. The version of sendmail im using is V. 8.12.10. Is there some third party software that i must use?

As im new to Linux, I hope this messages does not sound ridiculous to any of you.

Thanks for your help.

There is a program called 'vacation' which is supposed to come with sendmail (but I can't see it on my system). Here is the web page:

I've never used it! That's all I know!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

You posted the same question in four different forums.
