This article explains enabling or disabling the “Missed activity emails” for posts and invites in Microsoft Teams on Windows 11.
The Microsoft Teams app is a communication platform that helps bring people together to get things done. Users can set up meetings, chats, video calls, communities, and more.
There are many settings one can enable in the Microsoft Teams app. You can connect your Google calendar, turn the camera and mic on or off on the lock screen, turn read receipts on or off, auto start Teams, disable Teams chat, sync contacts with Teams, connect to Google Calendar, link your mobile device, turning message preview on or off, turn spell check on or off, turn on or off phone number in search results, manage notifications, turn on or off suggested replies in chat, and more.
One of its essential features is the ability to receive activity notifications via email. You can turn on or off notifications to be sent via emails for community posts and invites.
Enabling or disabling missed activity emails in Microsoft Teams is important because it lets you stay up-to-date with important conversations and activities even when you are away from the Teams application. For example, if you have missed a message or a reply, you will receive an email notification with a summary of the message content, sender, and associated conversations.
This way, you can quickly catch up on the conversation and respond directly from your email client without opening Microsoft Teams. However, if you find these email notifications distracting or unnecessary, you can disable them.
Enabling Missed Activity Emails
- Open Microsoft Teams and sign in to your account.
- Click on More options (three dots) next to your image profile
- From the drop-down menu, select “Settings“.
- In the Settings page, navigate to the “Notifications” tab.
- Under the “Emails” section, you will find the “Missed activity emails” option. Use the drop-down menu to select enable or disable.

Once you have enabled missed activity emails, you can customize the settings to suit your preferences. Here’s how:

Receiving Missed Activity Emails
