Email notifications not working?

I noticed that Duolingo was no longer giving me notifications for practicing the languages that I'm learning a few weeks ago. But now as time has passed, I've also noticed that I haven't been able to get other notifications (e.g. daily reminders for languages other than German, somebody friends me, etc). I'm currently looking over my email and I do not have Duolingo in any blocked lists or anything of the sort.

Has anyone else been getting this? I've tried a few solutions some users recommended me to try in another topic I made about the notifications (before I realized the other notifications instead of the notifications for practicing languages weren't working) but they weren't able to work.

The same here, I just came to the forum to have a look if it is a wider problem.

I actually realised it because I wasn't getting any "Your answer was accepted emails." Now it can be something like 2 weeks since the last email. Yesterday I set also all the possible reminders and nothing. No emails at all.

Does someone know why?

I just tried changing my email adress though. So we shall see.

It is definitely a wider problem, although it hasn't happened to me. At least not yet.

So changing the email has helped - emails go to the new email adress. But after changing back to my old one it is silent again...

Is it possible that notifications are getting eaten by an overeager spam filter somewhere between duo and you?

You absolutely rock! I would never have thought to look in my spam folder had you not suggested this. Thanks a heap--have a lingot as well.

How odd! For almost a year, all Duolingo emails would make into my inbox, then all of a sudden they are now considered spam? I wonder why? Probably too much traffic?

    I stopped getting emails a few weeks ago too, and a few days ago the autoposting to Facebook stopped as well. Not sure what's up with it. I mean, it's not really hindering my language learning or my love for Duolingo, but I'm curious about it.

    I agree. It's a little strange to me. It hasn't really been hindering me either, though it's a bit annoying to forget to practice because of not getting the emails. Hopefully they'll be able to fix it soon.

      Hopefully they will. I did get an email about your reply here though, so that's something, lol.

      Yes, that's good to hear. As for me, still no luck. At least we have the activity button here on Duolingo!
