email notification in outlook



I have the email notification in Microsoft Outlook turned on. I think there is supposed to be an envelope in the task bar when I get a new email, but it does not appear. I am getting my emails in outlook (from hotmail), but I just can't figure out how to get the notification to work. I just started using outlook, so this is probably something stupid.
have a look at mailbell (

or try this:
look for the option check every ... minutes and especially the dropbox about connecting
(translated from dutch, so names maybe wrong)

That should do it


Goto Tools>Options>Email Options(Button)>Advanced Email Options(Button)>Check "Show an envelope icon in the system tray" under the subheading 'When new items arrive'.

That should fix you up. Hope that helps! :)

PM me if you still have probs.
