    How to Turn On or Off Mail app Notification Banner and Sound in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Windows 10 comes with a new Mail app. The new Mail app brings improved performance and a familiar three-pane email UI, with a toggle to quickly move between your email and calendar. Mail includes customizable Swipe Gestures, letting you swipe right or left to take actions like delete, flag, move or mark as read/unread. Also check out the new email authoring experience. Mail leverages the familiar and rich capability of Word to that allows you to easily insert tables, add pictures and use bullets and color to your text. The Mail app supports Office 365, Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, Yahoo!, IMAP, POP and other popular accounts.

    The action center in Windows 10 collects and shows notifications and alerts from traditional Windows applications and system notifications, alongside those generated from modern apps. Notifications are then grouped in the Action Center by app and time. When the Action Center gets a new notification, it will briefly show a notification banner above the taskbar notification area to let you know.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off the Mail app showing notifications in action center, notification banner, and playing sound for your account in Windows 10.




    Here's How:

    1. Open the Mail app.

    2. Click/tap on the Settings icon at the bottom left, and click/tap on Notifications in Settings. (see screenshot below)

    It's still pretty spotty for me as well. Sometimes you'll get the notifications and sounds for the Mail app, and sometimes you don't.

    Be sure that you also turned on show notifications from the Mail app in Settings in step 5E.

    Anyone knows why I don't get an instant pop-up and sound notification for incoming emails? Sometimes it's working but sometimes not.
    Sync in my account settings is set up as "download when an email arrives. I get an instant notification on my Android phone but not Windows app. Sometimes it takes some hours to get an action center notification and sometimes it never shows and plays but when I open Mail app manually, all new mails are there.

    Suggestion :
    Create another user account with exactly the same privileges as this current one > logon to it > setup your Mail app > see if you have the same problem on notifications.
