You need to configure SharePoint's email settings.  Check here for full instructions:

Specifically, you'll want to:

Configure outgoing e-mail for a farm

You can configure outgoing e-mail for a farm by using the SharePoint Central Administration Web site or by using the Stsadm command-line tool. Use the following procedures to configure outgoing e-mail. After you complete the procedures, end users can track changes and updates to individual site collections. In addition, site administrators can, for example, receive notices when users request access to a site.

To configure outgoing e-mail for a farm by using Central Administration

  1. Verify that you have the following administrative credentials: You must be a member of the Farm Administrators group on the computer that is running the SharePoint Central Administration Web site.

  2. In Central Administration, click System Settings.

  3. On the System Settings page, in the E-Mail and Text Messages (SMS) section, click Configure outgoing e-mail settings.

  4. On the Outgoing E-Mail Settings page, in the Mail Settings section, type the SMTP server name for outgoing e-mail (for example, mail.example.com) in the Outbound SMTP server box.

  5. In the From address box, type the e-mail address as you want it to be displayed to e-mail recipients.

  6. In the Reply-to address box, type the e-mail address to which you want e-mail recipients to reply.

  7. In the Character set list, select the character set that is appropriate for your language.

  8. Click OK.

Configure outgoing e-mail for a specific Web application

You can configure outgoing e-mail for a specific Web application by using the Central Administration Web site or by using the Stsadm command-line tool. Use the following procedures to configure outgoing e-mail. After you complete the procedures, end users can track changes and updates to individual site collections. In addition, site administrators can, for example, receive notices when users request access to a site.

note Note:

If you want to configure outgoing e-mail for a specific Web application, you must first configure the default outgoing e-mail for all Web applications in the farm. If you configure the outgoing e-mail for a specific Web application, that configuration will override the default configuration for all Web applications in the farm.

 

To configure outgoing e-mail for a specific Web application by using Central Administration

  6. In the Reply-to address box, type the e-mail address (for example, a help desk alias) to which you want e-mail recipients to reply.

Have you tried it with the same email addresses that are working when you add users in SharePoint groups? If you don't have your SMTP server setup for relaying, email will only go to internal addresses but won't make it external addresses (gmail.com, hotmail.com....).

If you continue to have issues, check the SharePoint log file - it should have an error with the reason the email was not delivered.
