iPhone Email: can not add new account...

I have one of the latest version of iOS on an iPhone 7 and have 7 email accounts working fine under the iPhone's email app. But I can not add the 8th email account, and wonder why not?

I got to Settings > Mail but do not see the + plus sign, which I recall was how to add a new account. Am I missing something?

Am I limited to 7 accounts?

At the very top of Settings, I see two Alerts, which might be the problem?

"Update Apple ID Settings" has a red circle with a "1" inside. I try and try to resolve that, without success. I am told to log in rom another device to iCloud, which I do. But the warning remains...

I also have a warning for "Finish Setting Up Your iPhone", a second red circle with a "1" inside But I do not want to set up Apple Pay.

So, with this can you suggest my next step? I really need to get another email to appear in the Mail app for the iPhone.

Thanks.

There shouldn't be any limit.  Have you tried powering the phone off and back on?

Give that a try and see if you can add any more accounts.

On the Phone, Reset Network Settings and see if that allows you to continue
