Not getting email reminders anymore.

I have not received an email update in about six weeks, although I have certainly pushed my luck a couple of times. Is this a known issue? Anything I can do to start receiving them again? My settings still indicate that I want to receive them.

I'm in the same boat as you. So is GeniusJack. For two weeks, I have not received emails from Duo (besides a request for support message confirmation). I'm hoping that TPTB would notice this issue.

In this context, what do you mean by pushing your luck?


I mean, I forget to do my daily practice until late in the evening. I haven't dropped the ball yet but it's only a matter of time before I forget for two days and lose my streak.


I've been getting the emails, but they turn up at like 11pm, which makes them not terribly useful, if I haven't already remembered to practice earlier in the day. I'm wondering if they've somehow gotten their time zone logic screwed up. :-|


I have this same problem. It was bang on 2pm until the last two weeks or so, they have been either random times later on, or not at all. I'm thinking of setting up some other way of receiving automated emails as leaving the duolingo message "unread" to annoy me with the "new mail" icon on my phone is my main reminder to do a lesson when I'm busy with odd work hours and other stuff.
