How to check the muted messages and emails

Muting notifications does not mean that you will never see them again. You can still check the messages and emails that you muted by opening the Messaging or Gmail app and looking for the conversation or email chain that you muted. You will see a mute icon next to the muted conversation or email chain, indicating that you will not receive any sound or vibration alerts for it. You can also use the search function in the app to find the muted conversation or email chain by typing the name of the sender or the subject of the email.

How to unmute messages and emails

If you want to unmute a conversation or email chain, you can do so by following the same steps that you used to mute it.

For text messages, tap the three dots in the top right corner, tap Group details, then tap Notifications, and then tap Default. 

For emails, tap the three dots in the top right corner, then tap Unmute. You will then receive notifications for the conversation or email chain as usual.
