Having a rough time doing damage control, replying to so many very old emails, automatically sent when I installed the latest Apple software.
Very embarrassing, businesses contacting me, perplexed, as to what the emails are about.
I cannot find anything on support to figure out how to fix these emails going out without my knowledge.

It’s possible these emails were sitting in your Outbox–that’s where emails that get delayed or unsent end up. Open the Mail app and scroll down the list of all your email services and check for an Outbox under each account.
If you see any Outboxes, open them up to see the contents. If these are emails that you don’t want sent, delete them

Same here. Did iOS update last night and it went through a random selection of 60 old emails that had been sent previously through my gmail app and sent them out again. It’s really embarrassing having to explain. Some of these are people I haven’t seen in years and some emails were regarding sensitive issues that did not need to come up EVER again.
It spammed one person with enough emails to crash their computer during the update.
I can confirm that these were emails that had been SENT, some would have had previous replies, but the emails were sent again. One was particularly odd that I can’t quite explain because it seemed to pull from multiple apps and I had deleted it long before this install, but it seemed to include something from the message app (perhaps using old contact app info) and sent it to that person as a gmail.
I can also confirm that this has been both a humiliating and time consuming experience. I will be reluctant to do future updates.
Same as above,
