How can I reduce Duolingo emails?
I keep getting emails with subjects like "You’re heating up. Continue your 3 day Spanish streak on Duolingo" and "What's your progress this week?". My email account has a size limit, so Duolingo will probably fill it up quickly. Is there a way to decrease (but not disable) emails from Duolingo and have them completely in text without images? That would be very helpful.
I'd love to be able to stop the "What's your progress this week?" emails. They aren't listed in the Notifications area where you can choose what to receive. They're annoying, not least because they make no sense whatsoever. So how do I do that? On the other hand I like the reminder that I haven't done my daily Duo.
I thought I'd solved this as this week's unwanted Progress email had an Unsubscribe at the bottom which may have been there and unnoticed in the past. However clicking it landed me on a page that said they had trouble accessing my Account but the link took me straight to the Account without logging in. And still no checkbox in the Notification section to get rid of these weekly emails. Does anyone from Duo listen? It should be sooooo easy to fix.
Hi, I have the same issue and was able to solve it. The problem is that the "unsubscribe" link address in the "What's your progress this week?" email does not properly include your email address, and this is why you get the error saying "We had an issue finding your account".
I was able to unsubscribe from "What's your progress this week?" emails by manually encoding the email address into the link:
1) Click on the "unsubscribe" link in the email. You should be taken to the following web page (note the email=%5BEncodedEmail%5D part at the end; this is where your email address will go):
2) Replace %5BEncodedEmail%5D in the above address with your email address (in the example I use firstname.lastname@example.org but you should use your email address) and visit the obtained address in your web browser:
3) The web page should now say that you have successfully unsubscribed.
You do that in your e-mail client. For example, in Thunderbird, make the menu selection "View/Message Body As/Plain Text".
I too recently had trouble opting out of messages. An administrator suggested that I was in an A/B test that hadn't implemented "unsubscribe." If so, I'd just have to wait until they fixed it or ended the test. Eventually the messages stopped.
For "email without showing immages", I don't need to set my messages to "Plain Text.
My email provider is using "Roundcube Webmail"
I can set "Preferences - Displaying massages" to
- Display HTML: Enabled
- Display remote inline images: NEVER
How to stop Duolingo's emails with subjects like "You’re heating up"
Follow the advice of yahuwa:
"you can unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe on the email" (In my email program the unsubcribe option is always displayed in the bottom of the email).
