I have a problem with registered users who lost there pasword. When they use hotmail or gmail they don't receive their pasword. When i do it on a normal private email it works. It also don't show in their spam folder. I tried this myself and with hotmail or gmail it doesn't work, what can this be?

In which case you will need to check the mail logs on your server to ensure the mails are actually being sent.

Ask your host for help with that.
