Received an email that my mom was approved for the I-485! They are mailing instructions. Does that means my mom don’t need to go for an interview? Is she will get her green card in the mail?
You may wish to read the email again.
Most AOSs require interviews.

Who sent that email? Besides the notices that a petition/application has been received, I have never received any email from USCIS regarding any status for my clients. The receipt of a petition/application does not mean there is approval.
"They are mailing instructions." What instructions should there be if the petition is already approved?
Is the email coming from your mother's attorney? If yes, she should contact her attorney to see what is going on with her case.
Your mother should review the specific facts with her attorney to see what her legal options are.
I'm assuming you received an email because you signed up to receive e-notifications. If that's the case and what you received is indeed an approval to the I-485, then yes, your mom's I-485 should be approved. I would wait to receive the actual approval notice in the mail to confirm.
Many times USCIS will approve certain I-485 applications without an interview. It is more common to see this when the petition is from a son to a parent as opposed to a marriage-based application. It is less frequent now under this disastrous administration, but it is still happening.
