Is your problem that the mail() function isn't sending the e-mail the first time, or that it's not activating when the link inside of the mail is opened?

Sorry, I'm not quite sure what you're asking here.

You need to set the settings in php.ini for that function to work...

You need to know a SMTP server, or run one...

I actually had this same problem today. If your server is on a Windows system, there are variables in the php.ini file that allow you to set an SMTP server. However, if you're running a Linux server like myself, you have to install sendmail. Further problems arrise if you have an ISP that doesn't allow personal SMTP servers. If that is the case, then you have to add define(`SMART_HOST',`your.ispSMTP.net)dnl to sendmail.mc, and remake sendmail. It's a hassle, but well worth it!
