Hi @lewisj please bear with me while I try to clearly understand the notifications she is getting. You say they are primarily emails – not text message alerts or wireless emergency alerts.
A few more questions. Is your wife using Gmail on her phone? Is she using any other E-mail program? Has she signed up for any automated E-mails from sites or apps she uses? Does she get them everyday? Is she still getting them?
Could be a series of SPAM messages that got delivered to her Gmail.
If they are SPAM E-mails these two links might help.
Google also has some information about SPAM and Gmail.
My troubleshooting approach is to determine exactly what notification(s) she’d getting so we can decide where they are coming from. Hopefully we will then know how to manage them…and maybe even determine why she’s getting them all at once.
So if you can give more specific information like the exact notification wording (a screenshot would be great), how you get rid of the notification, or anything else that might help determine where the notifications are coming from it might help decide what steps to take.
This forum is also open to other Community Members (customers like myself) that might have some ideas too!
