E-Mail account gone

Hello everyone,

I somehow made my gmail-account dissapear. I was checking my sync-settings for the account and swiched off "E-Mail" at "synchronized contents".

Back on my home screen the tile for the mailaccount was gone and is still. Also in the list of apps my gmail is gone. When I switch on the sync for Mail (and not just contacts or calendar) it does not come back!

It is possible to send mails/share images by sending mails from this account.
Creating a new email account on the phone is not working because already existing.

Do you have any idea how to get back to my mails?? Thank you!

(I hope you get what I ment. I am using my phone in german so I do not know the exact wording of the english version.

After switching on e-mail did you sync again.?
