Is there any way to reverse syncing between 2 phones after it’s already done?

I’m not technologically proficient. I recently got an S21+ and for some reason, one of my email apps did not transfer with the phone vendor.

So in my ignorance, I was trying to figure out how to transfer the old app/account from my ancient Note 5.

I absolutely did NOT deliberately push any buttons to sync the two apps/accounts, but it happened somehow. I would never intentionally sync from and old phone to a new phone.

Now my S21+ only shows me a handful of very recent emails, and listed under those, are emails from last year.

This is fairly disastrous, because it wiped out a bunch of emails I need on the S21+.

I’m pretty sure the answer is no, but is there any way to revert the S21+ to restore the hundreds of emails that got wiped out?

Failing that, how to keep this from happening again? So far my desktop computer does not appear to have synced with any other devices, but my laptop apparently did sync, since I have the same problem as the S21+ — just a handful of very recent emails, and then it jumps back to last year.

As long as I can preserve the old emails on my desktop PC, I can still find the ones I need, so not all is lost. Assuming I can make sure the PC doesn’t get synced.

Not sure if I should even ask how to transfer/copy my second email account from my old phone to my new phone. I do need a second account on the S21+ for work purposes. Maybe I should go to a Verizon store and ask for help?

TIA for any help/suggestions/etc.
