That's OK - I don't want to send vacation mail to folks that BBC
me either.

Useful rules (taken from 'man vacation'):
     No message will be sent unless login (or an alias supplied
     using the -a option) is part of either the ``To:'' or ``Cc:''
     headers of the mail.  No messages from ``???-REQUEST'',
     ``Postmaster'', ``UUCP'', ``MAILER'', or ``MAILER-DAEMON''
     will be replied to (where these strings are case insensitive)
     nor is a notification sent if a ``Precedence: bulk'' or
     ``Precedence: junk'' line is included in the mail headers.

Anyhow, enough non-operation junk for now.
