    The second one. But take a look at the following two examples.

    Tell me when she comes.

    and

    Tell me when she will come.

    The first one means that I want you to tell me (about sth) the moment she appears / the moment I see her.
    The second sentence means that I want you to tell me the time whe she will come. Something like: 'Tell me the time when she will come'.
