    Default Feature request: imporvement of Vacation notice

    Hi,

    I'd like to see some improvement in the vacation module.
    In the moment you only
    set: mail adr.
    period
    text message
    active/inactive

    From my point of view the following should be added (should be
    easy)

    set starting day + time (!) # typical Friday 3-p.m.
    end day + time (!) # Sunday 8p.m.

    Add a simple filter around vacation, so mailing lists etc. are not "spamed"
    witch vacation.

    --------------
    if not header :contains "Precedence" ["bulk","list"] {
    vacation ...

    .
    ;}
    ------------------

    I'm always doing it directly, but many users are not able to handle
    a sieve script. In the old SLOX it was included (time and date).

    Just a hint ....

    Hi,

    the precedence idea could be an option.

    The period support is already there but only if the SIEVE implementation supports it (e.g. Dovecot >= 2). IIRC for SLOX the Cyrus IMAP was patched to allow that as well but I think the existing "normal" Cyrus still does not support it.

    Hi,

    there is already a function in the mailfilter which might help here. In mailfilter.properties you find the following:
    Code:
    # Specify here if vacation messages should only be sent to specific domains
    # If multiple domains are given, they should be separated by ","
    # e.g. VACATION_DOMAINS=testdomain.com,example.com
    VACATION_DOMAINS=
    If you enable that the vacation mails will only be sent to the mail matching that domain.

    Furthermore at least the SIEVE implementations of Cyrus and Dovecot don't sent vacation mails to mailing lists. This is handled internally and don't have to be enforced by and specific filter rule. This is even advised in the RFC of this SIEVE extension: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5230#page-8.

    Regards,

    Dennis
