I am new to sharepoint, I installed it and I created a new site and subsites. Now, I want to add users to the site, I added a user, it's added successfully but no invitation email is sent to the user, so I want to know if there are any settings that I have to do to enable that? or what is wrong with me?

Waiting your help and reply, and Thank You
