I don't want Outlook to pop up anything to let me know when a new email has arrived. In the past there used to be an option to turn this off. Where do I find this options in Outlook 2010?


go to
- File tab
- Options
- Click on Mail
- Scroll down to Message arrival
- Then uncheck Display a Desktop Alert and click OK alt text

    Of course, it's right where it should be - somehow I missed it, though. Thanks! – EMP Nov 1 '10 at 3:48
