If you’re using Outlook on your desktop, you might have noticed that notifications are not working properly. If this is the case, then we’ve got some tips to help get things back up and running. Here’s how to fix if Outlook notifications aren’t working properly:
How to Fix if Outlook Notifications Not Working?
Try to Re-enable Send Receive Rules
- To re-enable send receive rules, follow these steps:
- Open the Send/Receive Rules window by clicking on the Send/Receive Rules button in the ribbon or by right-clicking on any item in your Inbox and selecting “Send/Receive Rules”.
- Click on the name of a rule that you want to enable or disable. A check mark will appear next to its name if it has already been enabled and grayed out if it has been disabled (we’ll go into why this happens later).
- If there are multiple rules with similar names, then click on one of them so that its properties can be changed before proceeding further.
Restart your Outlook
You can restart your computer, or simply close and reopen Outlook.
- Close the program by choosing File > Exit from within the Outlook window.
- Restart your computer if it’s not currently running (if you’re using Windows 10, press and hold down Shift until you see the signifying power button). This will put Windows back into its default state so that it can start up again with a clean slate. If this doesn’t work and nothing else seems to be working, try resetting all of your settings in Outlook by following these steps:
Disable Automatic Solutions and Groups
- You can disable automatic solutions and groups by going to File > Options > Mail.
- You will find the options for disabling automatic solutions and groups under the Mail Tab.
Disable Automatic Reminders
You can also disable reminders in the Calendar section of Outlook. To do this, select All Calendars from the View menu and click the arrow next to Reminders to expand it. Then click on a specific calendar that is set for reminders (for example, Weekends), and then press Ctrl+F11 to open it in full screen mode.
To turn off all automatic reminders in your Outlook calendar, follow these steps:
- Go back up to the top menu bar by pressing Ctrl+Alt+α (Windows) or Command+Option+A (Mac).
- Select Calendar options from there; you will see several options including “Show only active tasks” and “Do not allow me to change my default settings.” If you have turned off any of these settings previously but want them now restored, choose Show only active tasks again before clicking OK at bottom left corner of window where there are options available for controlling notifications functionality
Uninstall all Add-ins
- Open the Options dialog box for Outlook 2013, and click on the Add-Ins tab.
- Look through each add-in listed and make sure that it’s turned off by clicking on its switch in the Actions column. If you don’t see a switch, then close Outlook and reopen it again to see if an error message appears when attempting to open your mailbox for some reason (this can happen if an add-in has been removed).
- If you have more than one add-in installed, choose which one(s) to remove using this method: Click File > Options > Add/Remove Programs… or select Tools > Add/Remove Programs… depending on which version of Windows you’re using (32bit vs 64bit). On 32bit machines, look under “Add or Remove Programs” under Optional Features; these have been removed automatically when installing an update so they won’t be listed here unless something else has changed since then!
If you’re having issues with email notifications in Outlook, you might have one of the many solutions listed above.
If you’re having issues with email notifications in Outlook, you might have one of the many solutions listed above. If your problem persists and isn’t solved by one of these fixes, then it’s time to take a look at the things that can cause issues with email notifications in Outlook.
If you’re still having trouble with your email not working as expected after trying everything else possible–and before moving on to other solutions–it’s worth noting that there are some things you can do yourself (or with help from others) to ensure that emails get through and aren’t missed.
For example, if someone has left their phone at home for an extended period of time but still wants them sent via their mobile device (as long as they know where they are), they could simply use another person’s phone number instead of theirs so they don’t miss any important messages or calls while away from home/work; this works well if both people involved have similar sense of humor when it comes down.
