Right after my Outlook upgraded to 2016 on Windows 8, I am no longer getting the New Email Alerts like I used to, while new emails successfully arrive in my Inbox folder.
Outlook itself is still configured to “Display a Desktop Alert” but it doesn’t show any more now.
Can I somehow get the old big alert and sound back when a new message arrives?
There is a fix for Windows 10, in which it says, "for some strange reason, Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016 don’t always get all their notification methods enabled on Windows". But I didn't find a fix for Windows 8.
