If so how? Options Log in or register to post comments Comments Your Outlook questions. Hello Dennis, I'm not sure if automatic checking for mail is in your notification settings. I know with my Outlook, when I swipe to that app, it will say if there are any unread messages or if not, it will say no unread messages. I did not understand your second question.
