Turning Off Automatic Email Notification


When you open Microsoft Outlook, one of its automatic settings will display a box in the lower right-hand corner of your screen to let you know a new email has come to your Inbox. The message will display the subject of the message as well as the first line of the message text. If the computer is connected to a SMART Board, you can imagine the potential problems this could create - especially if kids are in the room and in-awe of your interactive lesson!

Here's how to fix this in Outlook 2007:
1. Open Microsoft Outlook
2. Left-click once on each in the following sequence:
  • Tools
  • Options
  • Email Options
  • AdvancedE-Mail Options
3. Un-check the box next to the statement, "Display a New Mail Desktop Alert (default Inbox only)"

4. Last, left-click once on the button marked "OK."

That's It! You Did It!


Here's how to fix this in Outlook 2010:
1. Open Microsoft Outlook
2. Left-click once on each in the following sequence:
  • File
  • Options
  • Mail
3. Un-check the box next to the statement, “Display a Desktop Alert.”

4. Last, left-click once on the button marked “OK.”

That’s it! You did it! ☺
