Outlook Email Notifications When Teams is Set to Do Not Disturb

Copper Contributor

Hello All,


I just want to say thank you for any help that you may be able to provide. My company used to use Skype for Business, and when our status was set to Do Not Disturb, this would silence notifications from both chats and any Outlook emails. In Teams, when I am set to Do No Disturb, it only silences the chats but emails that get sent to me by co-workers still pop up as a notification on my screen from Outlook.


I know that the two applications are synced because Teams correctly shows the correct status when I have a meeting set up in Outlook, and when I type an email to someone in Outlook, it shows their status in the bubble next to their name in the TO field.


It seems funny that this feature would have been take away in Teams. Does anyone have any suggestions on this? I think I have gone through most of the settings, but have had no luck. Am I missing something?


Thank you!

Hello @yoandsm 


There was a question at our answers.microsoft.com site that seems similar to yours:  https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/do-not-disturb-in-teams/6029a261-3b62-4ce3-ac...


Also, @Christopher Webb  wrote an article on DnD a couple of years ago.  The original post is below, but I'm hoping he can give you more specific instructions related to your current situation.



Hello, I appreciate your reply. This does not answer my question though as it has nothing to do with how Teams and Outlook work together.

Thank you


Hi, did you ever find a solution to this?
