Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I want to know the exact functionality of the Notify checkbox below the Tags field on the Ask Question page. How can I use it in the most efficient way?

Each SE site sends ~daily emails with all replies to all questions you have notifications enabled at roughly 7am CEST(?).

If you visit the site regularly, you don't need them - their refresh rate is very long (up to 48 hrs), while other notification mechanisms like the StackEchange(tm) MultiCollider SuperDropdown (tm) are updated at every page refresh.
