Any other tips I should try?
Try switching off Office Bluetooth under options on iDrive (can't remember exact option name but it's near download whole email) and then switch it back on again.
Also, if you are testing by sending yourself an SMS, lock your phone immediately after sending because there is no notification if you stay on the messages screen on your iPhone.
Try to get SMS working first, then look at email
