Three things to try:
1. Don't run your email program when watching Netflix
2. See if your email program has the option to turn off notifications. Since you didn't tell what email program you have I can't be specific
3. See if switching on Windows 10 Game mode turns it off.

Start button-Settings-System-Notifications and Actions, then scroll to the bottom section and turn OFF the email account.

Hope this helps.
