  1. No Avatars for Outlook 2016 (365) mail notifications in Action Center?


    Hi,

    When a new e-mail appears in my Outlook 2016 (365) account(s), that is shown in Actions Center. However, the notification does not show the sender's avatar (image) even though that's saved to my People details for my most used contacts. I have seen these 'Avatars' in some UWP apps (Twitter...?) so theoretically it could work.

    Seems this isn't implement / feasible in current Office. And no, it ain't a dealbreaker for me, yet it would make things and UX a bit more polished. Let's see if 1809 and the up-coming Office 2019 will change that.

    IS there a time limit for Mail notifications in the Action Center?


    I may have never noticed this in Windows 10 but after the 1607 anniversary update was released I noticed that Mail notifications that turned on the Action Center Icon and the Email subject and sender information in the action center, over time, would disappear without any intervention on my part. To be clear an email notification would arrive and the Action Center Icon would change to indicated that a notification was received and the details of that notification were listed in the action center but (A) I did not click on the action center icon (B) I did not open the built-in Mail application and (C) I did not open Outlook 2010. However, after being absent from my PC for a period of time, I noticed that the action center icon was no longer showing a notification and when I did finally open the action center there were no notifications there either. What I seem to remember was that prior to the 1607 anniversary update, if you clicked on the action center icon the icon would remove the notification highlighting but to actually remove the notifications themselves from the action center I had to either clear the individual notification or clear all notification or open Outlook 2010 and download my mail.

    So, is this the behavior that others are seeing? If so, is there a way to control this so notifications simply don't disappear on their own?

    No Notification of new Outlook 2016 mail in Action Center


    I have selected the option to receive notifications of new email from Outlook 2016 in Windows 10 settings, but am not receiving them in the Action Center. Are there any other settings that need to be changed or possibly any registry keys that need to be added? Thanks.

    No Avatars for Outlook 2016 (365) mail notifications in Action Center?

    how to let a clicked notification of a new email in the notification center, let you open that email in a Outlkook 2016 (locally installed) instead of the Mail app?

    Hi Enzo,

    If you've set the Outlook as your default email and you're still having issues about the notifications, let's try another workaround. Try turning the notifications on for the Outlook app. Follow the steps below:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click System then Notifications & actions.
    • Click on Outlook 2016.
    • Check if Notifications is On and set the
      Show in action center
      switch On.

    If the issue still persists, try turning Mail app notifications off instead:

    • Open Mail app then click Settings (gear icon on the bottom).
    • Select Notifications.
    • Turn off Show notifications in the Action Center to stop showing new emails in the Action Center.

    Should you need further assistance, feel free to post your query anytime.
