I recommend you to validate "Log email" and "Track email" so you are sure every email you send and received are automatically logged and email tracking is activated also (emails synced will be visible in your contact's timeline).

You can also activate that only for contacts, companies or deals, tickets. I prefer to select every objects so HubSpot activities are attached to every important HubSpot objects.

If you have some emails you do not want to log, you can exclude domains.
