1) does it do that even if you do enter a message?
(It's expecting at the very least a set of headers, maybe giving it a
completely empty message confuses it.)
2) what MTA do you have? (ls -l /usr/sbin/sendmail)
3) you do know that this is a server, and that user-friendly mail programs
exist, don't you?

We'll know the future has arrived when every mailer transparently
quotes lines that begin with "From ", but no-one remembers why.
