Desktop Alert

Fix the timing




You can set the length of time a desktop alert appears, by going to:
  • Tools>Options menu
  • Email Options
  • Advanced
  • Desktop Alerts Setting




How to Use the Desktop Alert Feature

The maximum time is 30 seconds. If, for some reason, you want the alert to stay up longer, you can edit the registry.

Run Regedit and go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\DesktopAlerts

Add a TimeOn DWORD key (if not already present) and set a value in milliseconds, up to 4 billion worth (50 days.)
One day is 86,400,000.
