Failure to send any emails is usually because the host server prevent certain actions. That's why Joomla offers 3 different ways to handle mail. Check the Mail Settings in Joomla Gobal config/Server

After searching more and more forums i finally found a solution and decided to post it here in case someone falls over the same problem.

The email settings below seem the same however, it only works with the top one and not with the bottom one.. so if you have your email settings set as the bottom one and it doesn't work.. try changing them!

configuration in general configuration that works:
mail server: SMTP server
Adress: name@gmail.com
Name: name
SMTP identification: Yes
SMTP security: none
Port: 25
User: name@gmail.com
Passwd: passwd
Smtp host: ssl://smtp.gmail.com:465

And IT IS NOT EQUIVALENT TO

mail server: SMTP server
Adress: name@gmail.com
Name: name
SMTP identification: Yes
SMTP security: SSL
Port: 465
User: name@gmail.com
Passwd: passwd
Smtp host: smtp.gmail.com
