i assume the script is run via a http server and not from command line. The server user ( apache -> nobody or www ) doesnt have the rights to create the needed temporary file. So set the directory where it should be created to
chmod 0777 directory

i dont know where qmail uses to create that unfortunately. You have to find out yourself...
cheers, j

It is likely that qmail is requiring /n/r in the php mail() headers

google phpsecurewiki mail()

It is possible that you use SMTP instead of the binary program for sending emails?

chmod -R 0777 /var/qmail
(not very safe but will probably do the trick?)

No, no, no!

qmail is structure such that, instead of a single task to handle emails, it is split into many small task. One handle injecting, one handle local email, one handle remote email and so on. So, User permission is very important, since each task will run in its own user level. Creating an incorrect ownership file may lead to even more problem.
