In PHP, mail() will always return true as long as it was able to successfully 
communicate with the mailserver.  As you have seen, that has very little to do 
with whether or not your email will go through correctly or not. ;)

Your error is coming because sendmail runs setuid, in this case to www, and 
www doesn't have write permissions to /var/spool/clientmqueue.
