As usual, when new mails arrive, there is only one envelope icon in notification area, irrespective of how many new emails. Thus if you would like to see the email details, such as times, numbers, senders and subjects, you need to create a new item alert.
I really appreciate a lot that Outlook will show an envelope icon when new mails reach. However, I virtually hope that I can see more detailed information before opening Outlook home page. My friend suggested me to enable new item alerts via creating a rule.
Create a New Item Alert Rule
- At the very outset, go to “File” menu and click “Mange Rules & Alerts” button on “Info” tab.
- In the new popup window of “Rule Wizard”, you need to select “Apply rules on messages I receive” and click “Next” to the next step.
- Then you would be required to select a condition from the list. But here you should opt to overlook it and directly click “Next”.
- You will receive an alert that mentions “This rule will be applied to every message you receive. Is it correct?” What you should do is just click “Yes”.
- Next here comes the key step, namely choosing an action. You should choose “display a specific message in the New Item Alert window”.
- Turn to the box at the bottom, and click the “a specific message” link. A new dialog box will arise, in which you should enter a message, for example, “The received items when you are gone”. After specifying this message, you should click “OK” and “Next”.
- It will turn to rule exceptions, and you can ignore it as well. And click “Next”.
- Name this rule and click “Finish” to apply this rule.
Note: if you would like to display the detailed alerts only for selected contacts, you can specify the people or group in rule conditions.
