New Message Icon

Typically, a small envelope appears in the System Tray when a user has a new, unopened item (usually a message) in Outlook. This is not the same thing as new mail notification in Tools | Options | E-Mail Options. Is there a way to turn this serviceon and off?

BD - The envelope your refer to is located just above the Systray, in the Status Bar?

If we are talking about the same envelope it appears that it is not a toggle feature.

However, if you wish to delete the Status Bar: OE>>View>>Layout>>Uncheck Status Bar. If you want the Status Bar to reappear redo the navigation and Check Status Bar.

The problem is that the notification envelope no longer pops up when a new message is received.

There are numerous ways you can accomplish your task. There are many utilities you can buy to manage your icons in the system tray.

You did not mention your OS, but there are two other ways you can do it yourself, but should be undertaken onlyif you feel comfortable in digging into your computer. The first involves editing your registry; 1) Go to Start, Run, type in 'REGEDIT' & Select OK.
2) Click on the plus (+) sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Click on the plus (+) sign next to SOFTWARE, Click on the plus (+) sign next to Microsoft, Click on the plus (+) sign next to Windows, Click on the plus (+) sign next to CurrentVersion.
3) Look in the Run & RunOnce directories and delete unwanted items. ***You probably want to removethe entry for NPS Event Checker**

If you run Win9x; Go to System Tools (under Accessories) and start the applet System Information. Under the Tools tab, start the System Configuration Utility, and select the Startup tab. Deselect the applet youdo not want to run in hte System Tray.
