How exactly does the page fail?

Have you setup the code to the precise specifications:

http://us4.php.net/manual/en/function.mail.php

You might also try setting the email address and subject as variables:

PHP Code:
$email "email@email.com";    
$subject "The subject line";

mail$email$subject$thetext$headers ); 
Setting things up in this fashion has gotten me past odd script errors.

#!/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/mail.php
<?php
$message = "Message received, message ignored";

mail('nousferatou@hotmail.com','Hey', $message);
?>


It 's right syntax! but not work why?
Have you tried send mail to localhost yet?
If it 's still not work ,I think it cuase your sendmail or postfix setting
