Ah, no.  But your subject was "ximian connector".  If you use Exchange,
then you'll want to use evolution-connector to set your vacation
message.  If not, it's not really your mail client that's at issue.  How
do you get your mail?

There was a program called vacation that did this, but it's not in F7
(at lest as a separate package).  I recall that there's a reason for
that, but I can't recall what it is.  Somebody better at it than I can
probably tell point you at a procmail script and some backend that will
do it.  Just make sure it can detect mailing lists and repeat senders
and avoid notifying them.
