I've set up a custom notification on a particular Gmail label (call it [special]). However, when an email with the [special] tag arrives, I get a notification for both the [inbox] and [special].

The audio notification plays the first half-second or so of the mailbox notification, and then switches to the [special] notification. In the notification bar, I get two Gmail icons, both with the same message when I slide the notifications open.

Without removing the [inbox] label from these messages, is there a way to eliminate the duplicate notifications?

I'm on 4.0.4.

  • As long as it is in the [inbox] you will get the notification. you could create a rule that "archives" it so it only exists in [special] and never in [inbox]. Commented Feb 9, 2013 at 0:45

    @Ryan - these are emails that require an action, I archive them when done, so I don't want to archive them by rule when they arrive.

  • There is no way to turn off notifications for "some" items that come in to the inbox. Commented Feb 9, 2013 at 14:31

In the main screen of the Gmail app, from the "overflow" menu (the three dots in the top-right), choose Manage labels. From there, select a label to get a new screen with that label's settings. From that screen, the Label notifications setting controls whether you get a notification for new mails in that label. If you turn it off for "Priority Inbox" and "Important", you'll only get the notification from "Inbox".
