If you have gmail accounts in your email settings, go and detele those. It appears that many people are having similar issues and the common issues appears to be gmail accounts. If you go into Settings and the mail setup, you can delete the gmail accounts, the email application will probably work again. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that you can setup the gmail accounts again under the mail app. Not sure what is going on here and there doesn't seem to be a solution yet.
Search the boards for this and you'll see a lot of people having the same issue. Look on the right-hand side of this page under the "More Like This" section and you'll see some similar threads.
My iPad 3 is experiencing the same issues after the 6.1.3 update but my iPhone 5 is working fine. Go figure.

As for the Google Calendar, same thing:
As for the Google Calendar, set it up this way:
It's an old article, but the content is still valid. Seems to match my
phone config. The Google Sync mention is the no-longer-supported option.
* Username: (your full gmail address, with the @gmail.com at the end)
* Use SSL (on)
* Port 443
Good luck to others with the same issue! I hope this works for you like it did for me!!
