Email vacation message

Hello, I’m using NS6
I’d like to know is there any package for email vacation auto reply.
which similar like

IIRC webtop, sogo and roundcube have all this feature which relies on sieve filters provided by the dovecot IMAP server.

Also Thunderbird has a sieve plugin for it!

Sorry for hijacking this old thread, but it seems the more similar to my needs:
I am using NS7 for mail; users access it via IMAP using Outlook (most), and TB (few).
With the incoming summer vacation they are starting to ask for the vacation settings (as they were used with the old Exchange that had been replaced from NS7).
In the Roundecube plugin list I didn’t find the vacation plugin.
There is a standard way to install it or some advice?
Thanks, Paolo

In general just download your wanted plugins and put them to /usr/share/roundcubemail/plugins/ as described in the docs. Maybe you have to configure them and then they need to be enabled by adding them to the PluginsList of the roundcubemail entry in the config db.

Here is the procedure for the vacation plugin:

# Download and extract vacation plugin
yum -y install unzip
# Move the extracted folder to the plugins dir with shortened name
mv roundcube-vacation-plugin-master/ /usr/share/roundcubemail/plugins/vacation
# Set owner and rights
chown apache:apache /usr/share/roundcubemail/plugins/vacation/config.ini
chmod 0400 /usr/share/roundcubemail/plugins/vacation/config.ini
# Set enabled plugins
config setprop roundcubemail PluginsList managesieve,markasjunk,vacation
# Apply roundcube config
signal-event nethserver-roundcubemail-update

Another way is to simulate vacation with an auto reply filter:


AFAIK, the vacation plugin is included in the roundcube package, there’s no need to download or install anything.

I rechecked it and could not find the vacation plugin. The managesieve plugin is included and can be used for vacation/out-of-office too.
The advantage of a sieve filter is that it can be set with other clients too like Thunderbird, the vacation plugin can only be used in roundcube so maybe it’s better to use the included managesieve instead of vacation.


Oops, sorry, I always used a filter to create a vacation auto-reply and I didn’t look carefully enough to your screenshot with the vacation plugin.

No problem, you’re absolutely right that the function is already there and nothing needs to be downloaded.
