No, you will not receive an e-mail. The forms will be in your account. However, the amendment forms have not yet been finalized in TurboTax. We expect that they will be soon.
You have to prepare an amendment on IRS Form 1040X to make changes to your original return. To amend you must wait until the original return has been fully processed and you receive your refund. You will need to prepare an amended tax return on a 1040X and mail it in if the new info changes your refund or tax due amount. You cannot e-file an amended return. They have to be mailed, and it takes up to 16 weeks for the IRS to process an amended return. 3 weeks after you mailed your amendment, you can start tracking its progress at the IRS Where's My Amended Return? site.
Amendment instructions can be found here when they become available for 2017 (early february): https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3288565
