This is a very common glitch that usually requires you to delete the email account from your phone, restart the phone, then add it back to remove the issue.

Sometimes, you can try a basic reset first so let's try that: Press and hold down the Power and Home buttons together until you see the Apple icon then release the buttons. After the restart, check again.
