Why does the Notify Step not send Email Alerts in Test Mode?

The Notify step is added to a Process with a notification set at level "Warning". The AtomSphere user is subscribed to receive Email Alerts at that level. When the Process is executed in Test Mode, an email notification is not received. Why?
Per the My Email Alerts documentation, AtomSphere will poll the accounts in the Alerts list every 5 minutes and will send out the proper alerts for all deployed, active Process executions and the status of all Atoms in the account. Email alerts are not sent out for Process executions that are run in Test Mode.

If you would like to test out the notification capability defined in your Process, deploy the Process to an Atom first, execute the Process and monitor on the Manage >> Process Monitoring tab. After the Process completes, you may need to wait up to 5 minutes for the email alert poller to run before you receive the email notification.
