No, by all means, keep it! And thanks to the (pseudo-)anonymous gentleman/woman who sent me a bit penny - I am much obliged.

Very kind of you!:) When i recieved the cent, the sender field said "unknown". Is it supposed to be unknown to the reciever from whom he get coins?

It's a way of simplifying things, since a transaction can have tens of inputs. It also prevents false information (if you thought you got a bitcoin from one address, for example, instead of .25 bitcoins from four).

One more question, i encrypted my wallet, but the client doesnt ask for a passphrase when i start it. Why is this?

The client asks for the passphrase when you make a transaction  Smiley

The payment could have come from anyone to whom you gave your receiving address. Since you posted that address in the forum, anyone could send you funds.

You can edit your address book to show the name of the payee, which may help your book-keeping if you only use each receiving address for one purpose. But in this case, an appropriate payee name would be something like "forum donations".

I just sent you a bitcent so you can see how it works. Once you have fully downloaded the entire blockchain you will be able to spend it.
