Apple Mail: Duplicate mail boxes inbox vs all mail

Hi All,

I have an issue with duplicate mailboxes - my backbook pro had some hardware issues and I had to to a clean install and time machine transfer. After the transfer there were some issues with the mail and now there are duplicate mailboxes - as in the screenshot there are the two gmail inboxes in Inbox and they are repeated in All Mail.

The problem is that this takes up a huge amount of space and is slowing mail down, and is a pain in general.

When I delete the one mailbox i.e. all mail - the Inbox mailbox is deleted as well.

I cant figure this out - any ideas / suggestions / thoughts?
