You need to disclose some additional information.

What e-mail client did you use to send the message?

Did you use the same client to read the message?

What locality or language are you using?

and What do you mean by "now it worked I think"?

Are you using any digital signature stuff?

thanks, my email client is outlook , I didn't use outlook to read the message because my vm-pop3d didn't work , so I read the message on the linux email server. but when I wrote a letter on the email server to myself and read it on the server , it could display correctly , I 'm a linux / postfix newbie , because I could receive the letter , so I thought the postfix did work , didn't it?
I nerver use any digital signature stuff because I just don't know what it is.

trying to read outlook e-mail in anything other than an outlook type client can sometimes do this kinda of stuff.

How were you reading it on the server, did you just do a more on the file or what?

If you want some solid help, then you need to give some concrete details. Just scrub your information you disclose for personal details (i.e. IP numbers, actual e-mail address, etc...).

Do some tests like using a linux client to send and read the message. Also try sending from outlook then reading with outlook. If you don't get the message back, then your server is not configured correctly.
