If we email a teams channel, the email is received but there is no notification icon on the channel or in the systems tray. Is this a bug?

 

I've seen from a separate thread that there are numerous bugs with notifications, bug haven't seen this specific problem reported.

You will get a notification but not if you are the one sending the mail to the channel, and also users need to follow the channel to get notified!

Im pretty sure I've seen notifications even when I'm the sender... but I've also seen numerous cases where the email doesn't generate a peep or arrives days later.

Yeah, it usually from what I've seen not send notifications to yourself, so don't test it yourself if you wanting to see it work, but also you must follow the channel as Adam said in addition to not being the one sending it.
Thanks Adam (and others). I've confirmed that notifications are received when I'm not the sender. Doh!!
