Turn OFF Status Bar Notifications of Incoming Mails on Android

You receive a lot of mail in your favourite Google Mail services, Isn’t it? The Android phone powered by Google, sends you notification in your top notification bar for each email that you receive. The notifications are instant and for each email that you receive on your Google mail account, you are notified for the same. In some cases its good because you get instant know of an important email but what if you receive a lot of spam mails.

I receive a lot of mails from Facebook about someone comment on my photo, story, liked, birthday reminders and all creates junk. You can bear with the junk mails in your Gmail but the notification on your phone for every mail is quite annoying thing.
