The .forward syntax recommended by the man page for vacation
in HP UX 9.x does not work.  Nor does the "usual" syntax.
Nor does any of the variations I tried.

Anyone know how to do it?

Put something like this in your .forward:
\mylogin
"! /usr/ucb/vacation mylogin !! exit 75"

Note that the exclamation marks should be pipe symbols,
I just cant get the pipe symbols to print in this form.

Of course you have to supply the correct path to your vacation
programm.

Also be aware that vacation is executed on the machine which recieves mail at your site, so you have to supply the path to
vacation ON THAT MACHINE.
