Do they use variables straight up, rather than via the new superglobals such as 
$_POST?  Simple solution, change your php.ini to have register_globals = on.

I guess somewhere, some text is being sent out to the browser before the header()  
functions are being called.  Perhaps due to a different level of error reporting in
your new php.ini setup?

The @ represses error messages.  For example:
   mail('', 'subject', 'body');
will produce an error message, that the to address is bad, while
   @mail('', 'subject', 'body');
will silently fail.

Rather than doing that, it's better to write your code so that there won't be error
messages in the first place.
