You should post some more info on your current configuration. Also, what
does you error-log say? Your error-log will probably say exactly what the
problem is.

Off-topic but VERY IMPORTANT:
 a) Certain versions of FormMail are exploitable. Are you sure you have the
latest version?
 b) If you are planning to use FormMail, rename it! There are many spambots
who actively look for exploitable FormMail-scripts. EVEN if you have have a
secure version of FormMail, all those exploitrequests to it will use
valueble resources.

Kind Regards,
Sander Holthaus
