I've started getting a String of spam through my junk emails. Firstly i wanna say its completely stupid BLOCKING emails and domains doesnt actually block them but just MOVE them to spam... DON'T CALL IT BLOCKING when it doesnt BLOCK!

The issue i'm having is even tho these spam emails are going to my junk folder... i get Notifications popping up on WINDOWS 10 as well as on my android phone it bings and pops up with the New mail icon and shows my spam in my junk box.

Both are very annoying! 

A) How do i turn off the windows notifications that pops up from receiving the JUNK email only.
(I use outlook, so maybe this part cant be answered here...but if someone knows)

B) How do i turn off notifications for the Android gmail app FOR JUNK MAIL ONLY.
Any settings ive looked at only give the option to stop notifications all together. not specifically JUST from the junk email portion. the whole purpose of blocking junk is so i don't have to hear or put up with the dam things and yet they ping my phone daily. But obviously for work i still need to be notified when i get legitimate emails in my inbox.

My phone is Samsung A5 for anyone that wishes to know... But im sure the app functions samey on most phones.

This is getting beyond a joke with the amount of spam pings. 
Is there no way to contact Gmail Support via email? Kinda crap their help area just pawns you off to the community to deal with it amongst ourselves.

Gmail App > Settings > General Settings > Manage Notifications - just lets you turn on/off Email notifications in general..not SPECIFICALLY junk email notifications.
Option for 'more settings in app' which just reroutes you to: Gmail App > Settings.

So i try Gmail App > Settings > User Email the spam is going too > and again simply as an Email Notify on/off switch... but obviously i still needa be notified by ACTUAL proper work emails. 

If no fix, can anyone at least recommend any other 3rd party app i can add my Gmails too along with my webmails

Think i got a solution.
On the email app, go to the three lines menu on the upper left corner > mesh icon for preferences > general > manage folders > unselect spam folder

This doesn't work anyone else have an answer. I am having the same problem.  I'm using the stock email app on a Samsung s9+ with an exchange/outlook account.  I get nonstop notifications from clutter and junk mail.  This only started happening about a month ago. Used to only be the inbox that was synced, unless I went into the other folders, then it would download them.

Same here    Clutter folder suddenly started post notifications.   There has to be a way to turn this off.  Better question is why it started in the first 
place!

same issue. started about a month or 2 ago. I have hotmail and gmail addresses and I receive a constant flow of junk mail notifications. Also, logging into the actual email address, and blocking/reporting this spam is doing nothing.

there are serval reasons that could be causing the unwanted syncing. one that was not mentioned yet unless i missed it when reading was in the stock mail program (im running a Samsung Galaxy s7 edge) is under the cog aka settings there is a refresh folder after you open it. i checked the tick to sync my spam folders the closed and reopened the app unticked the synced spam folder then reticked the sync  folder after checking and it worked for me so long as i dont click into the spam folder again
