the order confirmation email is not sent – Magento

how to enable the “order confirmation email” and able to be sent to the customer email?
The email was sent before, but somehow the order is not sent by email anymore. The “Order” and “Order Comments” setting in the System->Configuration->Sale Emails are Enabled.
Where can this go wroing?

Just make a small change in order.php
(public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Sales/Model/Order.php)
First, create one directory structure on the path below, then copy and paste the file to the path below.
(public_html/app/code/local/Mage/Sales/Model/Order.php)
Now, change from
$mailer->setQueue($emailQueue)->send();
to
$mailer->send();

First you want to enable the ratings in the Admin panel in Magento. So go to Catalog > Reviews and ratings  > Manage ratings and choose and/or add those that you want to appear in your product page. Just click on each one and select in which shop you want to it to be displayed.

Yay! Done! Now if you are using the rwd-theme and go to your product page, you see that we just added a review… table.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like it that much. I just want 5 pretty stars that I can click. If you are using the rwd-theme as a base, we just have to slightly modify a template file and add some css. Let’s say, your theme is called “mytheme”...
