I have created a task list in Sharepoint for submittal and approval of leave requests.  There is supposed to be an e-mail generated and sent to the approver when the request is submitted, but for some reason the email is not being sent.  All the other functionality of the task list is working fine (permissions etc.).  I have enabled the e-mail notifications in the advanced settings of the task list.  Is there somewhere else in the site that e-mail notifications need to be enabled to allow the emails for this task list to be sent?  Thank you!

AFAIK, it does not work in that way and to send those e-mails you need to have a process behind the scenes such as a Flow
