When you enable Vacation Message on a mailbox, you get the following error:

ERROR Cannot enable vacation message. Error Code 1
ERROR Unable to update Vacation configuration.

Also when you send a message to this mail account, you receive a bounce message instead of a Vacation Message.



 Please, check that the vacation binary file has proper permissions, the executable bit should be set :

# ls -l /home/virtual/FILESYSTEMTEMPLATE/vacation/usr/bin/vacation
-rwxr-xr-x 8 root root 18609 Apr  9  2009 /home/virtual/FILESYSTEMTEMPLATE/vacation/usr/bin/vacation

If the executable bit is not set, change the permissions:

# chmod ugo+x /home/virtual/FILESYSTEMTEMPLATE/vacation/usr/bin/vacation
