Sure.  The trick is in getting the message to the  Autoresponder system.
This can be done by the delivery agent (maildrop), or further upstream in
the MTA.  I use Postfix as my MTA.  When I receive a message via smtp, it
(pipes it through a virus filter) (pipes it through a spam filter) and drops
the message in the maildir.  It also "forks" the message, sending a copy to
YAA!.  YAA runs it's own little pseudo smtp server, and recieves the message
from postfix. (on port 3333 I think..).  Then Yaa looks at the rcpt to,
looks it up in the database, and generates the vacation message.  If no
vacation message exists, the message is discarded.

Could you give me an overview of how your setup works using YAA? I can't
seem to wrap my brain around how you would do something like this in a
dovecot environment.
