Squirrelmail + vacation_local plugin

I have some problems with the vacation_local plugin for Squirrelmail.

System : SUSE 10.2
Squirrelmail 1.4.9.a
vacation_local 2.0

Method #1 (the standard method):

I have a local user account for user mike.

The ”built-in” (command-line) vacation-command for user mike creates the following files/contents in mike's /home directory:


\mike, ”/usr/bin/vacation mike”

Subject: Away from my mail

I will be away from......... etc....

This works fine and autoreplies to the sender....

Method #2 (squirrelmail + vacation_local):

(vacation_local configured for vacation_backend = suid)

A vacation-activation in Squirrelmail (with plug-in module vacation_local) for user mike executes without errors
within Squirrelmail and creates the following files in
mike's /home directory :

Subject: Away from my mail

I will be away from......... etc....

Away from my mail


”| /usr/bin/vacation mike”


I will be away from .....etc....

Unfortunately after activation of squirrelmail-vacation anyone trying to send mail to mike recieves the following error:

Undelivered mail returned to sender
Command died with status 1: "/usr/bin/vacation

Activating autoreply + forwarding in vacation_local forwards the mail (without errors) to the mail-address in the forwardfield, but returns the same error to the sender.

Any ideas ?????
