This is by design. You need not click on the Outlook icon in the notification area. For troubleshooting purposes it is required. If some issue comes, then how can one check the status if it is disabled

Hi, fmarcelo14.

There are two registry values that control these settings.  They are NetWarn and NetConn.  Both can be found at HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Display Types\Balloons.  They are DWORD values where 1 equals on and 0 equals off.

I have slow link between sites, once this is known issue I want to by-pass this alerts.
How can I do this?
Disable Outlook Alerts by GPO or Script, because I´m going to use Cache Mode and delivery e-mails directly to personal folders.
Regards,
Marcelo

You could use either.  I'm not very good with GPOs, so I can't tell you how to create a GPO that changes the setting.  Scripting it should be simple.  Something like this.
Dim objShell
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Display Types\Balloons\NetWarn", 0, "REG_DWORD"
objShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Display Types\Balloons\NetConn", 0, "REG_DWORD"
Set objShell = Nothing
