please make sure you use a decent editor when editing files. notepad++ will keep the file UTF without BOM which is most likely the cause of your issue.

short answer is:

the mod will set a time when the email was sent last.
if a user with the same time settings as the board triggers the mod script, it will send out the emails to members whose birthday it is that day on that day.

The user normally triggering that script is normally the guest user account and happens as from midnight. Depending on your traffic it could be at 00:05 or even be at 3:00 am but it should not be at 11pm the night before someone's birthday. I can only imagine that your time settings are different than the board settings. can you please confirm?
thanks.

Hi Lefty,

I don't see in the UCP > Profiles any setting to enable. I don't know where to look in the ACP either. Please help.

I installed using AutoMOD. Thank you.
