I'm really out of my depth now. Here is the situation:

CiviCRM version 5.36.0 Wordpress Plugin Hosted on Linux Server

Administer->System Settings->Outbound Mail: enteredSMTP-Server, Testmail is sent and arrives at destination.

View Contact->Actions->Send an Email: Mail is sent and arrives at destination.

Mailings->New Mailing->Testgroup: shows 2 recipients.

Send test (single) 2nd try: Mail is sent and arrives at destination.

Send test (Testgroup - same as final recipients): Mail is sent and arrives at destination.

Next->Send immediately->Submit Mailing: Mailing is listed as scheduled, Email does not arrive at destination.

The Mailing report doesn't show any bounces.

I have tried different recipient addresses (two different test groups) on different mail services. I have tried with two different Mail providers for outbound mail. Everything works except the final mailing. I have no idea what else to test.

Thanks Martin

It's maybe not obvious but send immediately for mass mailings means "schedule it now". You need to set up the scheduled job that sends out mass mailings. See https://docs.civicrm.org/user/en/latest/initial-set-up/scheduled-jobs/#job_process_mailing
