Do you actually have sendmail installed and running?

One of the gotchas about XAMPP/Linux is that it's dead simple to get Apache, MySQL, and PHP running, but it takes some effort/skill to get a mail server that works properly.

You'll need to install sendmail or postfix or qmail or any other MTA of your choice. When that's running properly, then you can use the mail() function in PHP.
