Re: [K12OSN] Vacation?

  I've used this procmail solution and it is awesome, and easy. If you weren't concerned about security, you could adopt the supplied procmailrc as the default and let you users manage their autoresponses. (For my purposes, I set it up individually for each person requiring a responder; it's a 30 second job). It doesn't respond to lists, and doesn't respond to spam. Very nice.

lol -- I googled that one up too, Scott. I thought, "holy crap, there must be a simpler way"

Maybe I shouldn't look for simple. :)

I did find another supposed procmail recipe for auto responding, but it didn't work at all. I might have to troubleshoot that one, or try the one from clarkconnect.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'm still open to other suggestions too, especially of the simple variety. :)

My principals are not working this summer, and I need to set up auto
replies for their emails. Is there a preferred method to do that? I
see the old standard vacation program is a thing of the past, but I'm
not sure the proper way to do it now. Ideally, I'd like NOT to reply to
mailing lists, etc.

Shawn I am just like you, I have never liked the vacation messages. A
friend at MTU swears by procmail though and always used procmail to do his.

Not *his* solution but a google'd solution for procmail and vacation
