You need to go to File>Options>Mail, under the message arrival option check whether all the options are unchecked.
You can even create some rules for receiving notifications from particular important persons. Select the mail from the particular mail id or person and right click it, then select Rule>Create Rule. Here set up the settings as per your requirements. You can even use this option for creating conditions regarding the subject line and the level of importance.
