Hi folks

I have now resolved this. It seems that as a security measure, this
server requires the from sender to be specified either using a -f switch
on the actual mail command or using:-

ini_set("sendmail_from", "email at thedomain");

Putting the latter in LocalSettings.php did the trick. Many thanks for
your help on this.

You should be able to do this within the script itself; place the
following lines at the top (under the <?php) of LocalSettings.php:

ini_set( 'display_errors', 1 );
error_reporting( E_ALL );
