At a glance at the error message it would suggest that you are using an
older version of the NMS FormMail - we know that the $allow_empty_ref
*does* work as expected. Please download the latest version of FormMail
If you think you are using the latest version, we will need to get more
detail including the entire configuration section of the FormMail as you
have it installed and a link to your form page so that we can test it
