Gmail - Open Inbox goes to Login Screen

For Gmail, I have 2 accounts. They both show the previews for the inboxes fine, but when I click either accounts to open up my inbox through a browser, it takes me to the login screen, not the actual logged in account. Are there any fixes/solutions to this?

    Go to the "Preferences->Accounts" section and click on the Google connection. Click "Settings" and then go to the "Miscellaneous" tab, then make sure that the "Automatically log me into mail when possible" box is checked.

    I created a gmail accout some time ago, which I haven't used.
    I would like to use it now, but I don't know how to log in.
    All I seem to be able to come across is "Add a gmail to my Google Account", but when I put in my actual gmail account it says it already exists and asks me to pick another one.
    Can someone tell me what's going on here?
