If you want to use the mail() function, you have to set sendmail_path pointing to a sendmail program that supports SMTP authentication (probably the one you are currently using does and you have only to configure it).

An other option is using the PHPMailer class which is able to send mails with SMTP authentication independent of PHP's mail function.
