I'm sorry all.. the private mail I sent Tom was meant to go to the list
as well.. I'm simply used to mailing lists rewriting the Reply-To
But here it is.. (one might think I didn't send this to the list from
embarassment .. :o):

F*ck.. I'm terribly sorry for wasting your time. I'm just stupid..
that's all. It turned out that my MTA wasn't running at all.. no wonder
mailman couldn't contact an smtp server >o((.

Thanks all.. and sorry again.

Could Arnar share with us how he got it fixed?

The life of the individual only has meaning insofar as it aids in
making the life of every living thing nobler and more beautiful.
Life is sacred, that is to say, it is the supreme value to which all
other values are subordinate.
