Well, this one sucked 2 days of my time trying to resolve.....

The current version of PHPMailer (5.2.2) has a defective function when run with PHP 5.3.1, the PHP version that is installed by FMS 11 Web Publishing.  The error is discussed here: 

The defective function is a preg_match inside class.phpmailer.php that evaluates where or not a submitted email is valid or not.  With the bug, it fails everything.

The solution is to use an older version of PHPMailer or a newer version of PHP.

Hope that helps.
