I checked with the local users who had sent an email to the user and none had received an autoresponce.
I cleared the log and sent again. Same thing - no responce.
I checked the next 5 minutes of log after the mail arrived and there is no sent msg in the log.
It should respond straight away, shouldn't it?
I also checked the errors and warnings logs and they are empty.
I checked the mail queue and there is nothing in there.
The email was delivered to the users inbox.
(I also tried the autoresponder with a different user and same thing)
Here is the relevant extract from /var/log/mail/info:
