As of current writing, it seems that it's (still) impossible to create a new label in Android Gmail app. From Google Gmail official support, Create a label To create a label, open Gmail on your desktop and follow these steps. (Emphasis mine)


Deleting the Gmail app wouldn't give you extra space, as it came pre-installed as system app. Those "system apps" live in a different partition (/system, which is why they are usually called "system apps"), which is mounted read-only – and not available to the user to be written. However, Google Apps (including Gmail) are regularly updated via Google Play. ...

I had this issue and it was because my phones had year randomly changed to 1990, check your date and time settings.


check date/time If they are "too far off", it might cause problems with certificates – which then either appear "not yet valid" (with your date too far in the past), or "no longer valid" (with your date too far in the future).

You can select only Gmail, leaving alone all the other services you don't want like Google+, drive, sheets, docs etc. There's no need to setup a third party email client. All (most) Google apps are aware of this functionality and ...


As you have mentioned you are using Kit-Kat, just open alternative email client as user87790 has said.It just comes as separate app named as Email. Open the app. Select add new from the bottom left corner with add new mark(Plus mark with pencil). Add new account enter your account details.

Although the Original Answer is already in place, let me just re-phrase it, which hopefully resemble Vanilla Android AOSP based phones. Open "Settings" application Choose "Apps" or "Applications" from the list of different Settings. Locate "GMail" App in the List of Apps shown. Select "Gmail" App and in this screen, there is "Clear Data" option ...
