It seems that I have to remember to switch off the message signing - company

I apologise to you all.

Well, bottom line, that was my question, kind of, and that link you sent, it 
gives a very good explanation to the matter. I could not see this documented  
anywhere, I mean how CONNMARK behaves with its various options, maybe I did 
not read the right stuff. But anyway, great job! I have to stick with both of 
them, CONNMARK and the good old MARK.

Thanks again,
Adrian
