Thanks to you and Gilles, it is now working.

The problem was with the call of mail(). I had forgotten that this server
calls an external smtp server which requires authentication. So I
replaced the plain mail() finction with the cutomized one that other
resources are using.

How about watchlists? Any attempt to implement this feature?
