   The behaviour is exactly the same as is the old original BSD vacation.
   It defaults to reply with vacation reply _only_ if it can recognize
   recipient's userid in the incoming message headers (To: and Cc:)

   I think you need to run it as:

          "|/opt/mail/bin/vacation johnie.walter"

   without reading the code thru carefully I can't say if it does
   support multiple identity recognition, or pays attention to the
   domain of the recipient.

   Oh yes, the vacation will also be silent if it has already sent
   a message to given envelope source address within past week.

   See   http://www.zmailer.org/man/vacation.1.html

    Well, that is exactly how it is supposed to work :)
