Sending a message to user A, B, C etc (cannot say if all or a few are

message of one user N of our same server. (which is not an addressed of
this message)

What goes wrong here?

Is there a cluster/server/domain-wide rule or rules on the affected
recipient accounts which are mirroring, forwarding or copying mail to
"user N"?


As I know there is no server or domain wide rule to copy mails to this user N

Following you find the part of the log where I myself was sending a mail
to the recipient "USER_A". Here you see that the rule '#Vacation'(Reply)
is triggered, but thats seems to be the one of "user N" as "USER_A" has
no rule enabled!

Still I can see in the log that tons of vacation messages of different
users are sent but all these users don't have any vacation rule activated

I really do not know what happens here...
