    This is likely an amateurish question so I apologize up front.

    I have downloaded and am using Blue Mail based upon recommendations I saw on AC. First, thank you to those giving the recommendation as it's a great email app.

    But now that I have it I'd like to stop getting duplicate notifications through my stock email app and the Gmail app, both of which I had already set up prior to getting turned on to Blue Mail. Is it simply a matter of turning those apps off in settings/applications, or is there something more elaborate that I need to do?

    Thanks.

    Probably the easiest way is this: Go to Settings>apps>swipe over to All Apps>scroll down to each app you want to kill notifications from, say Gmail. Click Gmail, and you should get an Application Information screen. There should be a series of buttons and right below, is a check box for Show Notifications. Uncheck that. Repeat the process for the other app.

    Thanks Golfdriver. Unfortunately I can do that with the Gmail app but the stock email app has the Show Notifications button grayed out. In fact, all the buttons age grayed out.

    I don't think I have heard of the Notification being deactivated on an app like that before. Not saying I don't believe you, I just find it strange.

    You could turn off sounds for that app or assign a silent ringtone to that app. Won't get rid of the notification messages, but at least the sound.

    Question is, do you want to keep using Gmail and the stock e-mail app for e-mail? If not, you can just sign out of GMail through the app and delete your account from the stock e-mail app. That stops notifications.

    If you don't, then you can turn off notifications from inside each app's settings.

    I thought it was weird too. Here's a screen shot.

    I would go into gmail settings. Choose the 2nd option. Then turn off notifications there.

    You should be able to do the same thing to turn off notifications in the stock app

    In the stock email app, select

    Menu- manage accounts - (select account) - select the desired notification

    Your default Gmail app is used for back ups and downloading apps and stuff so I wouldn't delete that one if I were you.
