It'd be better to configure your mail client to do proper internet style
replies, although I see "X-Mailer: Lotus Domino Web Server Build
V851SAAS_12072015_FP3 December 17, 2015" - which likely means you are
using IBM Verse. IBM Verse is not suitable for open source work - you'll
have to get an IBM LTC IMAP account (which has its own problems on still
reyling on some IBM mail infrastructure) or sign up for GMail.

Although, since you're in China, signing up for something like GMail may
be problematic.

What if we update petitboot? AT least historically, BMC and host
firmware have not always been updated in tandem.
