Error when checking mail via Postie/Wordpress

I've got Wordpress set up on my site. I can use the e-mail checker built into Wordpress for posting into the blog via email, so that when I go to http://www.studiosonic.net/site/wp-mail.php , it checks the email account I've configured in the settings without any problems.

However, I want to use the Postie plugin for checking my email account. I've installed and configured this. When I go to "Test Config" it says that all my settings are correct. However, when I go to http://www.studiosonic.net/site/wp-content/plugins/postie/get_mail.php to check for email, it gives the following message:

CGI System Error: Script Execution Failed

The system encountered an error while attempting to execute this script:

I got a similar message to this when I hadn't got the chmod permissions set to 755. When I corrected that, everything else was working fine...apart from this one php page - get_mail.php.

Any ideas?

Solved it....seemed to a problem with the php file itself..edited it, and now it's fine!
