Sharing Vacation History Between MTAs Using memcached (Doc ID 2029010.1)

Last updated on MAY 25, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 8.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The MTA avoids sending multipe autoreply/vacation messages to the same sender by keeping track of who has received the autoreplies and when they were sent.

This information was kept in a BDB database in Messaging Server 5.x.

In Messaging Server 6.0, it was changed to using .vac files which could be shared on an NFS server (see Doc ID 1999235.1).

Starting in Messaging Server 8.0, you can now use memcached to store the vacation/autoreply history information.

Also see the VACATION_TEMPLATE option.
