The newly released QmailAdmin 1.2.5 corrects this problem. When
creating a vacation responder, it will put the Maildir delivery first
in the .qmail file, and then call autorespond.
For existing autoresponders, you'll have to manually edit your .qmail
files. You might be able to find those files with a command like this:
grep -l autorespond ?/*/*/.qmail ?/*/?/*/.qmail */*/.qmail */?/*/.qmail
(If you don't have hashed directories, you can just do `grep -l
Note that 1.2.5 is a devel release. I just started using it on my
production server, and have tested add/modify/delete of all address
