Hi bnerella,

this means that the sendemail script was not able to use your mailserver. The sendemail script uses by default localhost as mailserver (set by argument server= ). This can have multiple reasons like firewall blocking or mail server refusing to accept your request or no email process/server running on localhost. Check with your network/mailserver admin.

hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
