Default Google email app proble: cannot sign in and doubled inbox emails. Not Gmail app

I am referring to the email app where you can sync several accounts. The problem is that when sending and receiving emails, for more than one time it says it could not sign in and then I receive repeated emails in my inbox.

The doubled emails are common and very annoying. I get them after I reply (I receive the exact same email I received just before replying).

The cannot sync issue appears when I am sending and receiving more than one email back and forth with someone.

Does anyone know what is happening?

May have something to do with the EMail server you are trying to connect to. I have 4 accounts (exchange, outlook, pop3) working using the Email app without issues (so far)

All the synchronised accounts are Gmail accounts. I do not know why is this happening

Any reason why you aren't using the Gmail app instead? Works beautifully!

How is the Gmail account set up in your Email app? POP3? IMAP?

I've never used the Gmail accounts on the Email app, so unsure about any common issues. Hopefully others will chime in.

Another question. When you receive an email with a link, is it possible for you to open it by just clicking on it?

My links are only recognised as text. From memory I think all links were click able but I can be mistaken.
