We have an e-mail server on Ubuntu 18.04 running Postfix and Dovecot. How can I make vacation autoresponding work for our user’s aliases?
Example: Say our Deputy Librarian is email@example.com and that’s also their user and e-mail account on the system, the one I
sudo su theirname to in order to run the vacation program. But they also have an alias in /etc/aliases called deplib, so that e-mails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org also get to them.
I have tried invoking vacation with
-a deplib and then
-a email@example.com but neither worked. Only e-mails sent to theirname get the autoreply.
Any advice is greatly appreciated. I find e-mail administration to be somewhat over my head!
