[Dovecot] Sieve Vacation for redirected email

I posted this elsewhere, but under an old post.  I apologize for the 
repeated question.

Hello Dovecot Users,

Dovecot 2.1.7

Our emails are redirected from the home office causing all vacation 
responses to fail with, "discarding vacation response for implicitly 
delivered message; no known (envelope) recipient address found in 
message headers".
I need to use the Sieve Vacation option but cannot figure out how to 
get it working for us.  If I send to the local address, it works fine.  
If I send to the redirect address, it fails with above error.  
Unfortunately, all of our emails are redirects from a single domain.
There's got to be some way to make it work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
