Outlook Desktop Alerts: Change Position on Desktop

Are Outlook desktop alerts covering up that tray icon you're trying to get to just long enough to drive you nuts? Sure you think changing the amount of time it's there will help, but why not change where the alert shows up? 

Here's how:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the Preferences tab, click E-mail Options, and then click Advanced E-mail Options.
  3. Click Desktop Alert Settings.
  4. Under Duration, drag the slider bar to the number of seconds for which you want new Desktop Alerts to remain visible on your desktop.

 Note    Although Desktop Alerts eventually fade, the new e-mail notification icon remains in the Outlook status bar until you open the new item or items in your default Inbox.

  1. Under Transparency, drag the slider bar to the transparency value that you want.
  2. To check your settings, click Preview.
