How to turn off Thunderbird notifications in Windows 10

Posted

Every 15 minutes or so a small popup appears at the bottom right of my screen with a few of my latest emails, telling me that I have a new message, and playing a sound. I do NOT want this, as it is very distracting. I want to simply check my email in Thunderbird when I'm ready. Thanks for info on how to turn off this notification. Juliana
