Cyrus IMAP includes Sieve which does server-side mail filtering.
There is documentation here:
and there are man pages for the utilities to install and manipulate sieve
and some docs are installed with the port:
I've never used these utilities - I use Mulberry as my mail client which
has support for sieve scripts built in. It talks to timsieved(8)
I tested vacation responses with sieve very briefly. It was a while ago,
but it worked. Here's an example:
:addresses ["joe at bloggs.com"]
:subject "Out of the office"
"I will be out of the office Friday, July 19 through Wednesday, July
24. In an emergency, you can call 2-xxxx and ask to speak to Dr. John Doe.
Otherwise, I will respond to your email after I return on the 25th.";
The white space is important!
