There might be an MX record missing or incorrect, and/or sendmail on
the php server is misconfigured into thinking that it's supposed to be
the end-recipient of mail for the domain.

When you say you can send mail from the server, you're using the mail
command? Have you looked to see what mail command PHP is configured to
use? You never know, maybe there is more than one on the box...
