Email Notification issues

Email notifications are going only to the Admin and not to the user who has posted the question. Is it because the question was asked anonymously? Is there some setting which I need to set so that all the users who are involved in the discussion should get activity notification?

There is a default setting of minimum reputation to send alerts to regular users. This makes it less likely that new users will succeed at spamming the mailboxes of the majority of the site users.

Thanks Evgeny. I'm new to Askbot and still confused why in my case whenever an activity happens the notifications are being sent to the site admin rather than to the person who asked the question anonymously. In second question by all the users i meant only the users who have contributed in the thread by submitting an answer or a comment. What is the setting to enable the alerts for them. also, can we send notifications when an answer is accepted/upvoted or a comment is upvoted.

There are no notifications on the upvotes or accepting the answer. Other users will be notified, but depending on the subscription settings of the users and the setting described in the answer and the status and reputation of the user who made the post.
