Uses of E-mail Notification

It keeps a regular check of the Inbox at regular intervals and keeps the user informed about the latest arrival. The notification also displays the type of message received and whether it has any attachments.
Need for disabling E-mail Notification
Besides the numerous uses of E-mail Notification provided by Windows Live Mail, the user may face some problems with this feature. This is because the user will receive notification even for the irrelevant mails. Sometimes the mail received can be of advertisement types. The notification of such mails is actually not necessary. Continuous notification of irrelevant mails may be an inconvenience to the user. In such cases the user can disable e-mail notification feature.
Once the user is inside the Windows Live Mail, click on the Menu bar. A drop down list will be displayed. Select 'Options' from the drop down menu. Before continuing, see that the 'General' Tab is selected when the Option dialog opens. Under the 'Send/receive message' section, uncheck the box for 'Play sound when new messages arrive'. This will disable the feature. Another way to prevent e-mail notification is to work offline.
