Try checking that little box which reads,

Set return path with -f parameter

I've seen some providers who will not send mail without it.

If this doesn't work, you may not have server side permissions to use php to send e-mail. And you may very well have to use your servers mail servers to send out mail.

For this to work perfectly, then not work, then work....ect.... You may want to contact your host or simply try using their mail server (not the php way).
Have you checked Spam folder? Emails tend to be detected as spam if you are running on shared host or vps. Or maybe it's delayed by the server email agent. Best to request support from your hosting provider.

Or you can use this http://xenforo.com/community/resources/bd-mails.2313/, for small site, Mailgun or Mandrill free package should be enough :p
Ok I guess I will contact them thanks guys :D
