Outlook App Keeps Vibrating

2013-09-09, 20:15 PM


Since I got my Moto X and installed the Outlook app, it keep vibrating with every new email. I have turned off the vibrate notification on the Outlook app itself, yet it still vibrates. It vibrates on active notification and also when I am actively using the phone. I have even unchecked the Outlook app on Active Notifications and it still vibrates. It is a quick, short vibrate, different from the normal vibrate notifications I get for Hangouts or text messages. This does not happen with yahoo mail or gmail. The vibrate did not happen on my old phone.



How do I turn off this vibrating? It's quite annoying since I get lots of hotmail emails everyday.

i do not have Outlook installed (we use Good to synchronize corporate email), but if you go into Outlook settings does it have a notification section? Probably under Account Settings / Sync?   
I disabled my email notifications here because it will drive you crazy. I am not addicted to my phone... I am not addicted to my phone...

Thanks for your help!



I've tried all your suggestions, except for running it in safe mode. I'm not that savy with my android phone - how do I do that? I only know about running things in safe mode when I get the blue screen of death on my laptop or desktop.

Please don't put your Moto X, or the Droid Ultra, Maxx, or Mini into safe mode.  The results are not what we've come to expect, and it appears to be more like an FDR than the non-destructive safe mode we've come to know and love.



For the HD series, or the original Razr series, it's fine.

Thanks for the warning smiley



Does anyone else have ideas about making the vibrate notifications stop on the outlook app? Do you think it's a problem with the app itself?

I have not used the Outlook app in a while (I think it's the most poorly designed app I have ever seen). I have my Hotmail account setup with the stock E Mail app. But to see what would happen, I signed into the Outlook app and sent myself, setup my account and sent myself an e mail from a different account. I have the vibrate setting turned off in the Outlook app and my phone did not vibrate.

I just uninstalled and re-installed the Outlook app twice. I also triple checked that the app has the vibrate setting off, but it is still vibrating... sigh, I guess I must must be me doing something silly.



I DID notice that it only vibrates when I don't have the app open. If the Outlook app is open or it is the active app, the vibrate does not happen...



For now, I will use the stock email app. Thanks much for everyone's help!
