No, go on the shell into the scripts folder and edit in the
mailposts.php the function MailPostsSendmail. This is only a
possibility, if you have basic Know How from php/shell

under which user are logged in? Test it under the same user the
apache worked. By debian woody it is www-data:

# su www-data
# mail "local.php" edward at aldreth.com < local.php

Show in the wiki.d folder, what user have the wiki-pages. This is
the correct user for test the mail command.
