Trying to determine when Microsoft Teams does and does not send an email when using the chat function.
Scenario - I am in a chat with a colleague, got the banner notification in Teams to alert me and when I came back a few hours later I responded. All that is good. This morning (next day), I sent him a another chat, he got the banner notification - which is expected, but he also got an email in addition stating that "Darrell sent a message". My question is why did it send an email message this time and not anytime yesterday. Is there some type of 'time period' (8 hours, next day) that is used to determine when to send an email? Also - is that configurable?

Yes, you can choose to have Banner and Email, for most notifications.
And you can choose the email frequency as well, from ASAP, to once a day, or never.
Click Settings, then on Notifications.

Seems to be on desktop only, to kill notification completely no matter your status or last activities.
On mobile, I deactivated the notification if I was considered active on the desktop app, so not to recieve notification as already working in Team and don't need double jingle.

I have set all notifications to Banner , Only show in feed, or Off. I have set Missed activity emails to Off. Yet I am still getting email notifications. I do not want any emails, at any time, for any reason. How do I get them all stopped for good?

Sorry if this is a stupid question - I have played with the settings and turned everything on - but is there a way ( or does it do it anyway ) to send me an email to my Outlook account to notify me that someone has posted a new question in a Teams group if I dont have Teams turned on ?
I dont always log in and people are posting questions that get missed.
I posted a new question expecting to get an email, I didnt ... or does it only get an email if someone replies ?
