    Hi there,

    is it possible to set up an auto answer, for example to use an out of office message? I am using ISPConfig

    You can enable and set the autoresponder message on the tab "Autoresponder" of the mailbox settings. You use a realtively old ispconfig version, I recommend that you update your system to or 3.0.2 rc 1.

    i just updated to now and set the autoanswer. basically, it works. I get an answer, but the "from:" header is empty as well as the subject line is just saying "Auto answer: from".

    I've seen in the mailfilters script, that there should be the $RECIPIENT, but that does not work here.

    any hints?

    after the update from to the following happens:

    my mail users who were named "[email protected]" get converted to lowercase "[email protected]" as soon as I save them, for example to apply an autoresponder.

    that leads to a delivery of new mail into /var/vmail/, but the current maildir is /var/vmail/ :-(

    by the way: autoresponders now don't work at all. the directories under /var/vmail/mailfilters/ are empty and do not contain any scripts.

    I should have stayed with


    edit: autoresponders do not work properly if text contains special chars or charsets (like cyrillic).

    Correct. Email names must always be lowercase or mail delivery might fail.

    Correct. This was a bug in old versions that allowed poeple to enter email addresses with uppercase.

    The files are hidden, you see them only with "ls -la".
