Hi,
First I'm from belgium, trying te write english, so I do appligize for my writting errors.

I installed a ubuntu LAMP server 10.10
Afterwords I instelled a Citadel server.
I can send and recieve mail in my own LAN. I can send mail towards an extern mailadres.
Anybody can send mails towards my mail address.

Now the big riddle:
I recieve a mail, I read it in mthe citadel browser, I want to repley.
The text that I wrote is gone! The other person recieves HIS mail only with an RE: messagetitle as sublect, but not the body or message.

Whan I lok in the sent Items I see the mail as the reciever can read it: no contence from me.

To put additional info: I live in Belgium, my provider is TELENET.
This ISP blocks all ports to 1024. (my webserver runs on port 8080, and my citadel runs at port 2080) the ports for recieveing en sending mail (25 and 110 are in the blocked zone)
My citadelserver is directly connected to the internet (without a firewall, not even in the mailserver. this is for test purposes

As soon it works as it should be, ik will place it behind a firewall. With all the nessecary redirects.

To be short, whan I repley from a mail, I don't see anythin in my send items neither sees the other person the contents if the mail.

Thanks in advance
