I'm on a Samsung S8 with software updated 9/6/2019 (let me know if there is more specific info needed).

Recently I've noticed that I am not seeing the new mail notification in my notification bar. It seems with most apps there are 2 places to set the notification preferences (one on settings > apps and the other within Gmail itself) but I'm still not seeing the icon indicating new mail.

For settings I have it set to:
Notifications: Allowed
Notification style: Pop up on screen
Sound: Silent (I like to see it but not hear it)

The Gmail in app settings are:
Notifications: All
Inbox Notifications: Label Notifications and Notify for every message are ticked

Is there somewhere else I should be looking?

Thanks in advance.

I have a Google Nexus One, it's still android and these are my settings:

Settings
Show Notifications - toggled on
under that line there is Mail which has a checkmark

In the gmail app itself
Notifications - All
Inbox notifications - Notify once


I get a silent notification icon on the upper left of my phone. I took off the little circle on the M that has number of unread emails.

You're using a nearly 10 year old phone?!?!? Wow!

BoSox, look into Battery Optimization.
