Tasks Notification not sending emails

I can't seem to get notification from sharepoint when a tasks is assign to
me. I created an "alert" so to notify me and I get an email from the server
saying.Alert 'Service Requests' has successfully been added on 'test.'
You will receive alerts in e-mail. The timing and criteria for the alerts
depend on the settings entered when the alert was added.
You can change this alert or any of your other alerts on the My Alerts on
this Site page.So the server is comunicating with my email but when I create a task and
assign it to myself I don't get an email say a task has been created for me.

Tasks lists have another setting available, to notify with ownership is assigned. Try this instead:

- Open the List
- Click List Settings
- Click Advanced Settings
- Under "E-mail Notification", change the selection to "Yes"
- Click OK to save the change

Try creating a task and assigning to yourself.

If you create the task for someone else, or someone else creates a task for your, does the e-mail come through?

I can't remember right off if SharePoint is "smart" enough to filter out self-assignments.

If SharePoint is filtering, you could also try creating a simple workflow which e-mails the Assigned To.
