Android Central Question

Firstly, I don't use my laptop,
I do everything on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
I have 3 Gmail accounts and 1 hotmail/Outlook account and each is assigned to different areas of my life - social, business, family, shopping.
All incoming emails are somehow copied to to every account, so GN and PayPal etc end up on all accounts.
All apps are regularly updated, I have deleted and reinstalled Gmail and Outlook and turned phone off then on.
Nothing works.
I am a moron when it comes to tech speak, over 70 and female so please, no tech speak replies. Thank you.

Are you sure you aren't looking at All Inboxes? (Tap the 3-line menu at the upper left.) If you set it that way, all your email accounts are shown at one time - but each email is still in the account it belongs in. (And you can choose the account to look in using the drop-down just above that, if you prefer to see them all separately.)

(I don't know about the female part - I've known some female programmers who could make me look like an *****, and I've been developing software for 46 years, but the "over 70" part isn't the equivalent of "I'm too old to learn". I'm 76 and still developing software - and learning things every day. [I think that your heart is linked to "your learning" - when either one stops, so does the other. So keep learning - anything - and stay young.] [I'm only 18 from my chin to my hair.])
