    I checked the notification settings, but I didn't see them... I don't want the Outlook app to vibrate, ever.

    Some offer something like that for in-app notifications, but I don't think it can be done for regular system/iOS notifications on that level.

    The vibrations are under the 'Sounds' option in notification settings. If 'Sounds' are enabled you will be notified by sound and vibration. Turn this option to off and all you will receive from that application are the on screen notifications like badges or NC prompts.

    If I turn sound off, it won't vibrate either?

    You didn't really mention much of that in your post. You can configure the sound settings for message and mail notifications not to use vibrate.

    Third party apps use the system setting related to vibrate for ring. As mentioned earlier in the thread, some offer an option to control that in their settings sometimes, but most do not.
