I have implemented a simple textbook version of the password recovery module which only seems to work when the recipients email is on the same domain (or perhaps on any domain on the server).

When I try to use it on an email address from a different domain it always crashes.

Though maybe it was a setting in my mail admin but nothing there.

Its gotta be something simple. See attached error message.
