Full Version: Vacation - Mail Dissappeared
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
Hi all

Running vacation-

I have a huge problem, a user went on holiday and I set Vacation up using usermin. Sent a few test mails and all was well. He came back to work today and she didnt have any email, they seem to have dissapeared. I checked the logs and mail coming in did get sent to vacation, the log states "...status=sent ("|vacation -a web john")" so as far as I can see it should be fine. Where could the mail have gone to? I cant find anything anywhere.

Thanks in advance

well maybe you could type

whereis vacation

or man vacation
the end of the file see where it has it's files log file etc...

under /var/log there should be something about vacation a seperate log file that might show you were the e-mails are

/var/mail is there something there ? (vacation or user_name)

Checked the man page and there isnt much there

I have users under /var/mail, and that mailbox is empty. Any other ideas?
Thanks for the reply!
