My company has been using qmail for the last 4-5 years, but we are now upgrading all our offices mail servers. It looks like we will be able to go with postfix providing it has "out of office" reply functionality. Anyone have any thoughts on doing this? I've found yaa but that doesn't seem like it's the best solution.

Agreed. And to get finer-grain control, front-end vacation with procmail recipes. Eg: :0 c
* ^From:.*borderware\.com
* ! ^X-Loop-Detect:
* ! ^List-.*:
* ! ^Precedence:.*bulk
* ! ^X-Mailer:.*Accucast
* ! ^X-Mailer:.*MIME::Lite
* ! ^Subject: New support ticket:
* ! ^Subject: cvs commit:
* ! ^Subject: \[(BULK|SPAM)\]
* ! ^X-Spam-Flag: YES
* ! ^X-Reject:
| /usr/bin/vacation bmw
This prevents (detected) spam and several well-known maiing-list sources from being responded-to. In this case I'm only sending vacation notices to fellow employees and avoiding sending them to outsiders (I use my work mail as my "main" mail) with the very first recipe line.
