How to turn off OWA sound notifications in Office 365

I have sounds turned off for my Outlook desktop client because I don’t like the interruption for my train of thought.  Recently, I was working in the web version and couldn’t figure out where to turn the sounds for new mail off in Outlook Web App.  I looked in options for OWA – but it wasn’t there.

After a little more tinkering – it’s actually in Office 365 Settings.


From here – go to notifications to set your notifications for mail and calendar reminders.

I have mine set to show the notification – but not to play the sound.  Finally some peace and quiet!
