How exactly is this disabled? Is the mail() function removed totally?
If so, we could easily do a function_exists() on this and provide an
alternate (if less secure) method of recieving the password if mail()
doesn't exist.

If it's disabled at a lower level, we may have to be a bit more
creative in our resolution. It may not be worth doing at all, as
others have suggested.
