This is a new error notice that was added in php 4.4. You or your  
host must have just upgraded php to 4.4.

The notice is generated for any functions that attempt to return the  
value of an expression as a reference. Apparently it doesn't work and  
the returned value will not be a reference, so the notice was added  
in php 4.4. PEAR Mail_Mime may have been have been updated to fix  
this problem. Make sure you upgrade to the latest version.

Here's more info on the new notice:

I'm curios to hear how others have been dealing with this issue. It's  
cause a lot of what I thought was well written code to start  
generating notices, (which in my mind are errors).
