PROBLEM: When replying to an email with the German WebAccess it puts Antw: [short for Antwort] instead of Re: in the subject-line. This is wrong and [like Outlook, where there is AW:AW:AW:] makes very long subject-lines. Nearly every mail client will be expecting Re:

SOLUTION: Don't use the German Web Access - the English Web Access should be put as default.

[Editor's Note: we have passed this along to Engineering for fixing at some future date. We agree it's mighty AW:AW:AW:kward.]
