I spent a while trying to figure out where this had gone but a suggestion that popped up on the settings page said to use the GMail app instead, which now supports accounts with POP3 or IMAP.
I hate the Gmail app always have and I use my own email server to keep prying eyes away it'll be silly of me to let that slip by using a Google app ?

Why not just use Outlook, as comes with the phone? Has dark mode, calander sync and likewise,from inside the app. I use it prior to Gmail's own, on Xperia 5.

Somehow I do not find the Outlook interface as user-friendly as Sony's email app? And the last time I tried it on my Xz1 Compact, there was no option to display the calendar in System/Google Calendar..... let me give it a try now

Nope still does not sync calendar... does only inside the app....

Just tried Nine and it looks good

Here Outlook syncs with g calander both ways, and to 3rd party widgets and back. Just tried again to be sure.

It is turning out to be a massive battery drain :( Overall a bit disappointed with this Xperia 5..... Xperia actions is gone as well, also am stuck with vertical app drawer

I don't really notice the battery drain as I've always charged my phone twice a day being a heavy user.

The vertical app drawer is proving annoying. Reordering apps is not smooth and no support for icon appearance ?

Can the Sony Email app be used on non-sony devices? I just moved from my XZ2 Compact to a Samsung Galaxy S10e and the stock email app is horrible. In desperation I downloaded Outlook for Android to see if that would help, but that's even worse.

If it can't be used, are there any alternatives that look, feel and behave as identically as possible to the Sony Email app?

Why not use k9 for email it's a very good mail client. Available in playstore and f-droid. In f-droid there are also prereleases too (the k9 people are doing a big overhaul of k9 just the moment.
