I'm using Gmail on Android 6.0 and almost every time gmail fetch new emails I have notification about old unread emails, each time I got new email the number get bigger (40 right now on my not gmail email that I've got spam sent).
I don't want to click on each email to maker it as read.
Is there a way to turn off notifications for old unread emails and only keep the ones that are for new emails.
As confirmed , the solution that worked is posted below
You can try automation. I prefer Macrodroid, being easy to learn and free (upto 5 macros)
Create a macro
Trigger: Notification xe2x86x92 Notification received xe2x86x92 Select Application xe2x86x92 Gmail xe2x86x92 Text content contains xe2x86x92 Enter here the text you see on the unread notifications
Clear Notifications xe2x86x92 Clear all
Optional if you don't want notification sound Volume Change xe2x86x92 Set notification on slider scale to zero
Constraintsxe2x80x8b : Leave blank
