Guide to Managing Duolingo Notifications with Gmail etc.
Part of the A Guide to finding Duolingo Guides series http://www.duolingo.com/comment/1278938

If you have a gmail account, you can create a folder into which you can automatically filter all of your Duolingo notifications. This will keep the notifications in one place and not in your inbox getting mixed up with your other emails. (I have mine set up just for notifications. To set up your own folder for notifications, follow these directions:
Step 5 This is the finished product. My Notifications don't clutter my inbox, they all go into a folder of their own in the order that they arrive.
I hope this helps ! ^_^
1. This does not include responses from Support or Staff. I would need to add those emails separately. But, I prefer getting those directly in my inbox.
2. I'm using Windows 7/Firefox, but I'm guessing this will work for folks so long as they are on Gmail. (You might need to be on a computer initially to set this up, rather than a mobile device. But, once it's set up, you should be able to access it from a mobile device. I'll edit this if I get updated info.)
**FOR YAHOO MAIL** go to the gear icon, select **Settings**, then **Filters**
