The new Outlook Android app show new emails when they arrive but does not show the notifications for them. How can I turn on email notifications? I am not using Quick Filter.


You can set notifications to be for Focused only, all or none per account. The default is Focused only, so if you turn off Focused Inbox globally you get no notifications unless you go into the account settings and set them to all. [Ref. - Android Central]

In the new Outlook app, the default notifications setting is Focused only. In order to see notifications for all emails follow the following steps:

  • Open the Outlook Android App Settings
  • Select your account, e.g., john.doe@outlook.com
  • Under Mail Notifications select All in the pull-down menu.
