Have you tried setting up mail() so that it uses SMTP over TCP/IP rather than
trying to call the sendmail shell command?

The documentation says that "SMTP" and "smtp_port" configuration options are
"used under Windows only", but if I recall correctly that just means that most
*NIX users don't _need_ to use these config options. I believe that they will
actually work under *NIX as well if you configure them.

Try setting sendmail_path to NULL, SMTP to "localhost", and smtp_port to 25,
and see if that helps.

This is a bit off-topic for this list, so feel free to write me off-list if
you want to discuss this suggestion further.

Kind regards,
