RE: Configure Outlook XP to *NOT* use sound notification whena filte r is triggered?



fixed

For all new mail or just the Spam stuff?

If for all new mail try:
Tools
Options
Preferences
E-mail Options...
Advanced E-mail Options
Uncheck "Play a sound" (mid window)

This is under Outlook 2000 so your mileage may vary...

For me, I turned off all the auto notify stuff in Outlook and then I found some
VBA code that allows me to get rid of the icon in the system tray for new mail.
I have a lot of rules and folders set up to handle all the email I get thru out
the day.  The icon would distract me because I would have to go check if the
email was for something I really needed to look into.  I then set up a rule that
would notify me with a message box if the email was from an actual employee of
the company I work for.  Works pretty slick.
