As my inbox was not updating anymore (problem with sync) I tried several solutions:

  1. Remove account and add it again (did not work)
  2. Remove account and remove .qml files (did not work)
  3. Remove email app and reinstall (in progress)

After removing the email app, I tried to reinstall it, but it just gives me "problem with installing". Other apps can be removed and added without problem. So I think I messed up somewhere with removing maybe the .qml part.

I hope somebody has an idea what to do or otherwise where to look to solve this problem.

I think you have to reboot after removing files from system.

I did reboot (several times) but that did not work either.

It turns out I was hit with the ssu status release: latest bug, so I could not install apps. (Why i managed to remove and reinstall the media app, that remains a mystery to me) After setting the release to it worked and I could install the mail app.
