Firstly functioning mail server must be configured with Askbot. Please look at the django documentation for that.

Secondly - the user who is to receive alerts is to be subscribed for that.

One way to subscribe is to go to the user profile -> subscriptions, make selections and save. Another way - if you are the site admin - go to the "settings" (the site settings link that is available to the administrators at the header) -> email and email alert settings and adjust defaults for the subscriptions.

The defaults applied in the second method will be effective only to the new users.

Lastly - it is also possible to enable "subscribed tag set" (in the settings -> data entry and display rules") and then edit subscribed tag sets from the tags page - this function is also available only to administrators and site moderators.
