users don't get notification email

I have successfully setup the email functionality. I came to that conclusion since I get all the feedback that users send. But users don't get notifications when a question get answered. I checked the subscription setup and I have set system to send immediate response yet I don't get an email. Could it be that I haven't setup a cron job? In the application the white envelop become red which means that celery is probably working properly?

Do I need to add this to my cron tab to get email to work:

# this is a cron job for askbot that includes all
# commands that need to be run periodically
# please find introduction to cron here:
# if you prefer, you can split this file into several



#these are actual commands that are to be run
python $PROJECT_ROOT/ send_email_alerts

I believe you do have to set up a cron job or windows task to run the email notifications. I think the "Real time" notifications work without it.
