avoid double vacation messages

2008-07-09 15:16:30


In my domain there are a lot of email addresses that are just redirects, and end in mailboxes in all possible external domains (like mails for user1(_at_)aegee(_dot_)org are redirected to user1(_at_)yahoo(_dot_)com and user2(_at_)aegee(_dot_)org is redirected to user2(_at_)gmail(_dot_)com).

I was thinking what will happen if a user configures a vacation service both on the redirecting server and on the server hosting her mailbox. Actually there is not so much to think - both servers will send a vacation reply. But my concerns are how to suppress the second vacation, from the server hosting the mailbox, and indicate in the redirected message that a vacation response has been already sent for it.

Something like "Auto-Submitted: no; vacation sent" or "List-Id: <>" ? Better ideas?

Thanks in advance for your opinion.
