Amen. A lot of otherwise competent and knowledgeable people
simply don't even begin to think about error checking when
sending mail.

If it's PHP, you can set a PHP flag for each virtual host in the Directory Tag:

<Directory /root/of/website>
    # maybe lots of other options
    php_admin_value register_globals Off
    php_admin_value open_basedir /root/of/website/
    php_admin_value doc_root /root/of/website/
    php_admin_value sendmail_path "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i -f ADMIN@EMAIL"

I don't remember if the open_basedir and doc_root were
recommended in order for sendmail_path to work, but that's how I
did it anyway :-)
