This guide describes how you can control the number of notifications end users receive in Mimecast for Outlook.




You can control the number of notifications end users receive by amending the value of the "Notification Level" option in the Outlook section of your Application Settings. See the Configuring Application Settings page for full details. This option has the following values:


Errors OnlyOnly notifications displaying error messages are displayed.
Warnings and ErrorsDisplays the same notifications as the "Errors Only" value, plus all warning messages.
Information, Warnings and ErrorsDisplays the same notifications as the "Warnings and Errors" value, plus all information messages. This is the default option.
