php+ sendmail no good - python + sendmail ok

Hey there,
i am having a problem with sendmail in debain sarge.
i have several python scripts that send email through localhost just fine (exim4)
and everything goes through fine.
however, when i set up a php page to send a confirmation email to our customers on our website, everything looks like it worked ( i get no errors )
the problem is that the message never goes through, and after that, my python scripts also start to fail sending through localhost ( although they still make it through when i use an extermal SMTP server)
i think it may be a permissions issue, like the sendmail program freezes when a web user (nobody) uses sendmail, then just locks up.

what can i do to fix this ?
