WordPress forms not working on EC2?

Hey guys,

I'm running some pretty simple WordPress sites on a micro EC2 instance using TKL. However, any and all web forms are not functioning. Looks like outgoing mail can be processed using the WP PHP functions, but no incoming mail.

I tested several different simple contact plugins, but none of them delivered the mail to the target inbox, which happens to be on the same domain name. The autoresponders did work, and when I set the form to send to an email address on another domain name, it worked as well.

I did some research on the AWS forums and found other people having the same issue, with no resolution (at least that I could find).

I love AWS, but this is a pretty big compatability issue if I can't get sites to send contact forms, and it's a deal breaker. Any help?!
