This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have a look at these posts: on meta, on stackapps 1, on stackapps 2. – Alberto De Caro Nov 23 '12 at 8:29
@gnat Are you sure that's the right interpretation of subscribe? I suspect OP wants to have notifications on updates/answers/edits to their question via email. – J. Steen Nov 23 '12 at 9:44
@J.Steen I edited based on the answer which uses "submit". If OP is really interested, they will come here and adjust the question as they feel fit – gnat Nov 23 '12 at 10:31
I am sorry, i want to subscribe not submit. I edited the post. – Seyed Morteza Mousavi Nov 23 '12 at 12:20

You shouldn't need to do anything. When your question gets an answer you'll get a notification in your Stack Exchange Inbox. If you don't visit your Inbox for 24 hours you'll get an e-mail reminder with all your notifications. You can set up your global inbox to email you unread notifications every 3 hours, 24 hours, or once per week.

global inbox email settings

These settings are always available for updating your global inbox, and each time you ask a question, there's a link to remind you about these email options. ask page - email settings

An alternative would be an RSS-to-email bridge of some sort. (Feedburner might work for this.) Every question has an RSS feed associated with it. Just look all the way down to the bottom right for a link to "question feed". Add that feed to the RSS-to-email bridge. (You probably don't need the "bridge" at all if your email client can take RSS feeds.)
