K-9 Mail, App Cloner and gmail

Tl;dr: Why wouldn't a "clone" of K-9 Mail connect to gmail?

Hello friends.

I know this is a long shot, but here goes:

If I make a clone of K-9 Mail (not for any nefarious purpose or anything like that, I simply need to change the app name so that the play store won't offer me updates) using App Cloner, the clone wont connect to gmail server to check my mail. Instead, it gives an SSL error.

It works perfectly on hotmail, yahoo, and my school's mail, but not on gmail.

The original checks my gmail with no problems, and the settings are the same.
Can anyone shed some light on the matter?

Best regards!
