Email not sending in live environment with Email_Template class

The contact form I've setup works fine in my local environment, but once I've deployed it to live, it doesn't send an email - there are no errors it displays and everything appears to work, but no email is sent.

Immediately I thought it was the SMTP configuration, and after checking that and testing sending emails another way, I'm really puzzled.

If I send an email using the standard email class like this:
$e = new Email('[email protected]', '[email protected]', 'subject', 'message');

It works ok, but when I used the Email_Template class to send an email with a template file and data values - nothing happens:
$email = new Email_Template();
$email->ss_template = 'ContactUsEmail';
$email->subject = 'Subject';
$email->from = '[email protected]';
$email->to = '[email protected]';

Now this all works fine in my local environment. Both local and live have PHP v 5.1.4 installed. Any ideas what the problem could be????
