Hi
I am using a script for while to set auto-reply/vacation/out-of-office throught procmail.
http://www.clarkconnect.com/olddocs/Howtos_-_Procmail_Vacation_Auto-Reply_Recipe
it's very convenient and easy for the users as they just need to send an email to themselves...
it's working "fine" with one problem. if the user send the email to other people it will setup the vacation/auto-reply to them as well.
example: Send the email TO: himself and TO:myself - it will setup the auto-reply for both of us.
the script is the same as in the link.
does anyone knows how to avoid it?
