I don't use roundcube and I wish to to put for 3 different accounts an auto reply for the time they are under vacation.
Do you have any clue as to how to do it from the command line ? Or is it a way to do it from the admin (mysql pro version) ?

Thank you for your time,

Some pointers would be already nice, so I can look for information about it.

Thank you in advance,


Re: Email Auto-Reply

Create file /var/vmail/sieve/domain.ltd/username/dovecot.sieve, with below content:

require ["fileinto", "vacation"];

# Move spam to spam folder
if header :contains "X-Spam-Flag" "YES" {
  fileinto "spam";
  # Stop here so that we do not reply on spams

  # Reply at most once a day to a same sender
  :days 1
  :subject "Out of office reply"
  # List of additional recipient addresses which are included in the auto replying.
  # If a mail's recipient is not the envelope recipient and it's not on this list,
  # no vacation reply is sent for it.
  :addresses ["j.doe@company.dom", "john.doe@company.dom"]
"I'm out of office, please contact Joan Smith instead.
Best regards
John Doe";

File owner must be "vmail:vmail", file permission must be 0700.

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?
