You are sending via the actual app correct? Not via the email app on the iPhone?

On the phone, hold your finger on the app until it wiggles and then press on the X to uninstall it.

Then restart the iPhone like we initially did, install the app and tell me if it then sends correctly please.

ok, then you will need to do a full reset of the phone, and reinstall it.

First, backup any data you need to keep from the phone eg: Photos, Videos ect.

Then go to settings, general, reset, erase all content and reset settings.

Once done, setup the phone, add the email account again and tell me how it now functions please.
