[TYPO3-english] mailform and powermail not sending mails

Doesn't anybody here have any clues at all?  I have tried disabling  
every single extension I am not using, messed around with  
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE']['strictFormmail'] and $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE'] 
['secureFormmail'], enabled $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE']['debug'] to see if  
the server would return any errors, but nothing happens.

Once again, the problem seems to be with this specific installation of  
Typo3 (version 4.2.6), since I have another Typo3 installation that  
works fine (version 4.0.1).  Both installs are on the same machine on  
a shared hosting plan at dreamhost.com.

In case anybody feels like checking what happens, here are the URLs of  
the buggy site and the functioning one.  Simply clicking the submit  
button without filling any information already shows what's happening.

Buggy (TYPO3 v 4.2.6)

Functioning (TYPO3 v 4.0.1)

For testing purposes, both forms are completely identical.

Please, I really need to solve this, since this contact mail form is  
important on the website.

Thank you,
Celso Reeks
