The vacation action will not send a response when the envelope-to 
address (in your case virtual_user at hostname) is not contained in the To: 
or Cc: headers of the message itself; the message needs to be explicitly 
addressed to the recipient. For the version you are using this needs to 
match the final recipient as passed to Dovecot. In newer versions of the 
Pigeonhole Sieve implementation the original SMTP envelope recipient 
(i.e. before local rewrites) can also be used instead. Alternatively, 
new versions allow disabling this behavior entirely, although this is 
not recommended.
