How can I automatically send a notification if someone assigns a task to me? For some websites it is working but not for new ones. The assigned person is allowed to view the list. What do I need to configure in order to get the standard notification mail send?

(During my research I found solutions regarding Release change, problems with outgoing mail but this does not fit to our problem)

Did you go into advanced settings for the list and select "Send email when ownership is assigned"?
