Yeah, ok a typo. (Sbil, as in Fawlty, ho ho! Sbil = Sybil, geddit?)

I have tried all common locations for sendmail without success. And now the 
support 'droid sends me another copy of the FAQ where is says that sendmail 
is located in /usr/sbin !! Honestly, they do not seem to read their own 
documentation, or perhaps they are just never reading my questions.

So, as they do not support PHP either, I am looking for a new home for some 
sites. I do not ask for anything fancy, just storage space and a scripting 
language with the ability to send me anything from a 'contact me' form. And 
of course mail handling with a couple of mailboxes (or email forwarding).

Any suggestions?
