first of all, Oliver, please use `group reply', i. e. send a copy (think
Cc: header) to the mailing list so everyone can follow that discussion.
Use the `reply to sender only' option (for reasons I don't know and
probably don't understand that's the default reply method in most email
clients) only if you really do want to send an private reply to one
recipient only.

Please use tcpdump (or a network sniffer of your choice) to verify that
packets get sent by the client and are received on server. Once you can
see packets on both, client and server, search for the reasons you don't
get any output. For that, set the severity of the logging plugin of your
choice to `info' or `debug' and check if you can see any log-messages
that seem suspicious.
Sorry for the very general advice, but you didn't exactly flood us with
information.. What OS are you running on the server, and what OS on the
clients? What does your config look like? Do you use binaries from
somewhere or did you build the daemon yourself? What libraries did you
link against? What dependencies does the package have? etc. pp
