as said, this is a test :) to verify your bugs. as you can see I was
able to use the GTK+ interface, to comment this bug.

The command line I used was:

$ reportbug  --mode=novice --ui=gtk2
--smtphost=reportbug.debian.org:587 --no-cc reportbug

filtered for this bug, reply, etc etc. and it was sent correctly.

I wanted to also replicate your other use-case, bug reporting, lucky I
was one to report :) With this command-line:

$ reportbug  --mode=novice --ui=gtk2
--smtphost=reportbug.debian.org:587 --no-cc boinc-manager

I managed to successfully open #591285

I suspect there's something "weird" on your setup. The only thing I
managed to spot at first sight is that in the "** Environment
settings:" there's no DEBFULLNAME.

you can try any of the above command-lines adding --paranoid: this
option will print the message on stdout right before sending it to the
MTA (so you'll be able to see teh complete email, including headers),
and you can paste it here so we can see what's going on and/or if
there's something to fix.
