 Subject:  strange firewall log entry
 Date:  Sun, 1 Jan 2006 17:58:07 +0100

First of all, happy new year to all!

I did my first m0n0wall install two days ago, and after scrutinizing  
the firewall log today I found something I cannot understand. I hope  
my question isn't to newbyish.

I've allowed, for now, all traffic on the LAN interface:
- I can reach my IMAP server on the DMZ just fine throught port 143.  
But in the log I find entries stating that traffic from my laptop to  
the DMZ IMAP server has been blocked. It only seems to happen when  
using Apple's Mail.app, wich is rather slow at opening IMAP mailboxes  
for some reason. Thunderbird has no delay and doesn't cause these log  
- I can reach the internet but still I find an entry that access to  
port 80 has been blocked to a RSS feed.

Where could these entries come from? I looks like something is timing
