This patch addresses a fatal error found in Exponent CMS v2.4.1 which prevented sending email on non-windows systems running PHP v7.0 or newer, or any system running PHP v7.0 or newer and using the php simple mail option which is now deprecated due to security concerns. It is recommended that users re-configure their site to use SMTP mailing instead of the simple mail option under Site Configuration, or they ensure their system supports a call to '/usr/sbin/sendmail' which is the replacement for php simple mail when running on PHP v 7.0 or newer.
