Dies ist Thilos Unix Signature! Viel Spass damit.
System: NetBSD WintelKiller 1.5_ALPHA NetBSD 1.5_ALPHA (WintelKiller) #236: Sun Jul 9 02:01:41 MEST 2000 thilo@WintelKiller:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/WintelKiller i386

If you have a forward like this:
  \test,"|/usr/bin/vacation -a test.user test"
in test's homedirectory and in your aliases is:
  test.user: test
then somone mailing to Test.User (or test.User or ...) would get no reply from vacation.

See above

Looks like a small typo to me:
