Check your apache server and if it's doing other PHP functions correctly then check whatever PHP code you're using in your script.

maybe the webuser (wwwrun, nobody or such) is not allowed to use sendmail functionality? Check permissions.
Could be helpful to take a look at apache error logs. Maybe you can find a hint in there.
