exactly that's the problem.

This is supposed to be used to set the envelope-from(not the header
from!) in the mails. And it does not look like a valid mailadress to me.
Thats what you log comlains as well.

Depending on the sendmail-implementation U use there might be
restrictoions on using the -f parameter as well.

I would suggest to have a look at the source where the params for the -f
switch are compiled and see what is going wrong there.

also be aware that the -f switch can't be used in php_safe_mode and that
your sendmail-implementation might have some more restrictions on the -f
parameter.(due to compatibility exim, postfix,... all provide a sendmail
compatible binary but the might slightly differ though in details).
you could try a 'ls -al /usr/sbin/sendmail' to find out which mta you
are actually using.

I do assume however is is rather a problem where this parameter get's
compiled.. see beloww...

dont know about this ^^. What does the manual say?

I would drop this ^^ one for a test. I do have a slight feeling this
could(!) be causing the trouble.

Also please report what you install-tool reports about the
'forceReturnPath' => 0 setting

That's all I can tell without looking further into it..

maybe it helps a little bit, otherwise contact me via PM.
