    Since the day I got this phone... Two weeks ago, the stock email app can't sign into Gmail. Set, erased, reset account multiple times, while rebooting in between. The Gmail app works.... It's the stock app that doesn't. Not using two step password, installed it, disabled it, rebooted....

    On my s3 the stock app was receiving both Gmail and comcast email in the "combined" inbox which is what I want the s5 to do. Any suggestions?

    Just tried this and i get the same
    from what i can gather its the Sync that effects the email so it fails to sign in as its already signed in so i tried a different account and bingo it worked
    Now in accounts sync i have the second account showing as well
    so it could even be a account issue
    Try using a dumby gmail account
