[Koha] notifying patrons about holds

I just got a note from a student worker who oversees circulation with a
question about holds.  She said, "Question: in Koha we are able to place
books on hold so the patron should get an email when the book is checked in
and placed on the hold shelf, but this system doesn't actually work."

I didn't think Koha was supposed to email the patron automatically that
their hold was available.  I checked the manual at koha-community.org, and
it also didn't sound like there were automatic emails being generated.  Can
someone confirm this?
