I've sent out the emails and it said everything was ok. Nothing came to my mailbox though... What's up?

Are you running in test mode? If so, then no email is actually sent - it writes the results into your geek/gaz/test folder.

If you are not in test mode, then it should come through as quick as your network should allow it (assuming you are sending it manually or via the newsletter page).

Check your spam folders, etc...

No I'm not running test mode. Something is wrong here.... Probably not with GAZ but with my own systems... I'm using a WIN server if that can have any difference?

What method did you use to send? What type of email HTML or text? can you check your logs to see if there was an error?

Not sure where the win servers logs are :(

Can you try to send yourself an text mail or did you send via the newsletter script?
