Hi Sam,

Have you checked to see if the emails are in the mail table.  The way works is that the email will go to the mail table in the database and then sit there until the cron dispatches them.  Usually its not very long and so if you want to test it you have to be ready to refresh the phpMyadmin view quickly to catch them in the table.  

So if they are still in your mail table then there is something wrong with your cron running.  Then check to be sure your cron is running.

If your mail table is empty then they were sent and it is out of your hands, its up to the rest of the mail process of your host after that.

Just increase the time on your cron job to give you time to look in the database. Then change it back.
