to that port and the default port is set at 80. The mail server which listens to port 82 on
my server is running fine so there is obviously not a problem with the router.

Presuming your router employees NAT, it means your IP/port forwarding is
set up OK for port 82.

This sounds exactly like what happens when port/IP forwarding is not set
for port 80.  So it likely is a router artifact.
