Office Home & Business 2019 windows 10 pro notifications for new email

Copper Contributor

Hope you can help for I have made all the relevant changes I could find to enable this function.

I am not receiving new email notifications from Outlook Home & Business 2019 in the notification and action centre and the Outlook icon in the taskbar doesn't change to an envelope icon.

office support sent me here to ask the question seeing I am using an Exchange service and the agent only asked what service am I using without asking any further questions about the application setup. It feels like he sent me here to get rid of me, not happy for I think this is the wrong forum for this issue.

Hello @Conor_Mullan


Have you checked the Focus Assist settings already ?






Hi @SouravChoudhary thank you for your reply, Focus assist is off, Message arrival - Show an envelop icon in the taskbar is checked, Notifications and alerts outlook is checked for banners and sounds, priority is normal.

All suggestions are welcome encase I have overlooked a minor detail.


Kind Regards
