Hmmm. Have you not been receiving emails regarding spam etc etc. There 
are several other wordpress installs on that machine and they all seem 
to send mail fine ...

What exactly is the apt-get line I would need to install this?

Sure. I'd be very happy for you guys to put it on your machine as that 
means less sysadminning (and lower resource burden) my end :) At the 
same time we're very happy to have wsfii.org stay on the system. If you 
do want to move you should probably first find out who is controlling 
the dns because we're not ... (I assume it is whoever registered the 
domain in the first place which from a whois looks to be Saul who I've 
put in cc).
