Here's where I'd start:

1.  Make sure that you can get to port 25 from the machine running PHP to
the webserver.
2.  Make sure that you do not need to authenticate the smtp session.
3.  Make sure you don't need to pop before smtp'ing.
4.  Check that relaying is otherwise allowed from your ip.
5.  Make sure the webmaster account does indeed exist.
