// the following line doesn't work

mail("", $topic, $message);

// while the following one does...

mail("", $topic, $message);

/* I'm sure that both addresses are valid but I get a
 * Server error while trying to execute the first line.
 * I saw someone having the same pb and attributing it
 * to the "-" that is not accepted by mail() function.
 * (in PHP annoted manual / mail() function notes )
 * Is there anyway to get over this bug or not ? */

We are sorry, but can not support PHP 3 related problems anymore.  Momentum is
gathering for PHP 5, and we think supporting PHP 3 will lead to a waste of
resources which we want to put into getting PHP 5 ready. Ofcourse PHP 4 will
will continue to be supported for the forseeable future.

win32 mail support has had severe problems up to php 4.2.x,
most of which have been solved for the upcoming 4.3 release 
(and are already available in snapshot builds)
