Item137: Register show user's a failure when sendmail returns non-zero

however, sendmail has at least one non zero return code that is not a failure.

on our FreeBSD server, TEMPFAIL means that the email is queued to be retried..

I've hacked to log the error, and not die, whic is also bad, but should look better to users.

this issue needs a couple of things changed
  1. test the return codes correctly
  2. log the issues properly, die mostly will never be seen by admins
  3. fix the exception handling so that dies are not often lost.

looks like sendmail is returning 67, when its log file says its returning 75, so I can't actually test the exit value at all :(. ammended the opps message instead, to give users hope.
