This plagued me too. I found a very easy solution: esmtp in the ports. A few catches: 1: You need an external SMTP server that will relay the mail for you. I was unable to get it to talk to the main host's SMTP, probably a "feature" of jailing... Luckily, I have another box on the LAN who's sole purpose is to relay mail for machines on the LAN. 2: After you install esmtp, change your sendmail links (/usr/sbin/sendmail at least I think) to point at it. 3: If you compiled PHP w/ a non-existent sendmail, you have to recompile. It's a little confusing, but if you dig far enough in the docs, mail() will not compile if sendmail doesn't exist (it tests). Enjoy!
