The first sentence states that when you follow someone you should get notifications regarding their activity. We're not seeing that this is the case in Zimbra 8.5. No emails are sent out when someone you follow performs some activity within Zimbra.
Is there a solution to receive emails for that activity? If not what would be the best development related route our team should be investigating.
