It sounds like your cron job is not setup - it needs to be running every 5 minutes or so. See this post for more info
i followed the link but its still not working
i wish there was an explanation on how to activate the cron and make it work smothely
Did you setup the Cron Job properly yet?
If you are very sure that Cron Job is setup properly and confirmation emails still doesn't work, you may be affected by a bug with Cron Jobs from Magento 1.8 and 1.9 which is still not acknowledged or addressed by the Magento team to date.
Open your cron.php file and look for the following line:-
$isShellDisabled = (stripos(PHP_OS, ‘win’) === false) ? $isShellDisabled : true;
Immediately after the line, add the following:-
$isShellDisabled = true;
Save the file, wait for a few minutes and see if the confirmation emails are being sent out.
