Well, I do have a vacation script, that does some messing (uses formail
to extract the from/reply-to from the message, then sends them a template)
More wondering; who do I send these messages as, so spammers don't get my
address, and people don't get confused when they get a mail from someone
called "Mailer daemon"...
