Almost every time on iphones this is because on the outgoing server settings, Apple says the user name and password are optional and people do not enter it. These fields are NOT optional. They must be entered on the outgoing server. Please check in the advanced mail settings for the outgoing server. Make sure you only have 1 server for Homestead mail and confirm that the email address and password are entered. You may want to retype the password, just in case.

The user name is the complete email address. You could try updating your password. I can see it has been several years since you changed it. I am not sure if it complies with current requirements. I have seen that interfere with client connections before. Your email is fully enabled so it should work. The settings are the same as your Android. Make sure that SSL is turned off and you are using port 587 for outgoing mail.

Are you using port 587? No SSL? Also have you tried via Wifi and cell signals?
