Can you show the error backtrace? It looks like errbuf is unused when
mail-interactive is nil except for the call to call-process-region
where it acts as the BUFFER argument

    Insert output in BUFFER before point; t means current buffer; nil for
     BUFFER means discard it; 0 means discard and don’t wait
