I figured it was time to upgrade PHP anyway since I was using 4.1.2 and 
then there's that Apache security problem, so I upgraded that too.  And 
my sendmail problem is still present -- every time I try to call the 
"mail()" function, even with the simplest of arguments (the first three 
required arguments, all three of them simple string literals: 
mail('[EMAIL PROTECTED]', 'SubjectString', 'BodyText')), it fails.

No email is sent, the return value of the function, when cast to 
integer, is zero, and I have thoroughly tested that sendmail works just 
fine.  It is a RedHat 7.2 server, if that matters (though I don't think 
it does).  I have done all of my compiling as root, and 
/usr/sbin/sendmail was definitely in my PATH.

If I had any money, I would PAY for someone to explain to me what is 
going wrong.  Thank you in advance if you can help me.
