Hi,

This is a simple request for the vacation.pl, to test for the presence of a users 'Real Name', and if set/defined, use it in the 'From' header in the generated auto-reply.

So, if no real name is set, then it works as it does now - just uses the email address in the 'From' header.

Examples:

Real name NOT set/defined (this is currently the way it works every time):
From: myemail@example.com

Real name set/defined:
From: "My Name" <myemail@example.com>

I'm thinking this should be a very simple change, since the real name field is already there.

Also - I'm pretty sure the quotes around the "Real Name" and the '<>' brackets around the email address are important when both are present.

Thanks for listening, and really looking forward to the 2.2 release!
