I've just heard from someone that both "in vacation" and "on vacation" are correct & that their meanings are very close to each other. However, their usages are different.

1. "He's on vacation" means that he's enjoying his holiday.

2. "He's in vacation" just means that he's off from work.

So, it's not appropriate to write something like "I'm on vacation till..." in some pre-set auto-reply at office because it's a personal thing & you need not tell your colleagues that you're enjoying your holiday. Instead, we should write "I'm in vacation till..."

Could you let me know whether the above are correct?
