Email notifications for tasks created with @mention

I believe I am not getting emails when a task is created and my username is @mentioned in the description. In the past, I have gotten these emails, but it's possible it was only after a task was created and then edited to mention me. Should I be receiving notifications when @mentioned during task creation? Is there a specific setting that affects this? I have reviewed to no avail. :-/

It's also possible the @mention only triggers after anything else has been edited in the description, where the @mention already existed. For instance:

[Create task] Description = "@MBinder_WMF"

[Edit task] Description = "@MBinder_WMF will do X"

The edit added more text, left the original @mention intact, but triggered the notification because it is now part of an edit.

@MBinder (WMF) Do you have a specific task ID where this happened, so we could look at its mail headers?

Agh, I had one but I can't find it now. The issue seems to have disappeared, too (which is good! just not for examples).
