Outlook 2013: disabling Mailtips still displays message


  • Hi All,

    + Mailtips are disabled on the Server (Exchange 2010)
    + "Never display Mailtips" is selected in Outlook 2013 Mailtips options
    + all Mailtips checkboxes are deselected in Outlook2013

    Outlook 2013 is still displaying a "we can't show Mailtips right now" message. Very confusing for our users - is there any way to turn that off?

    Thx in advance!
    Rgds - M.

  • Try adding the following registry key...

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Options\Mail\DisableMailTips = 1

  • So create it like the post says:

    Create a new key called Mail

    Create a REG DWORD entry, name it DisableMailTips and set the value to 1

    Restart Outlook

    Works perfectly

  • Using the DisableMailTips does work perfectly.  I also saw how this is available in Group Policy.  Is there a way to disable only one of the options in MailTips.  For example, we would like to block or disable the "Recipient address not valid" option.

  • Worked like a charm for me.

  • How do you create a new key?  I am having this same problem.
