    Default Mail showing unread messages that I cannot find

    Just yesterday I added a Yahoo mail account to my MBP, iPad and iPhone. Everything seemed to be working and syncing across devices, however, today I've noticed that my iPhone is showing 5 unread messages in my Yahoo account. When I go into my inbox on my phone there isn't anything new. In fact, when I go back and using the Mail app look at the Yahoo inbox exclusively, there is nothing there. I read and deleted those 5 emails on my MBP. I'm not sure how to get this working correctly. I cannot seem to get my mail app on my iPhone to recognize that those emails have been read and deleted. Any ideas?

    Default Re: Mail showing unread messages that I cannot find

    I had this problem as well this morning. When I completely closed the mail app by double tapping the home button and swiping up and then went back to the home screen the notification disappeared. I was also getting prompts to enter my yahoo email password even tho my mail was showing up in my inbox. I finally complied & so far so good. Wondering if something is going on with Yahoo. Don't know if you've tried rebooting your iPhone yet but that seems to help when I get little annoying issues as well. Sure hope you get it figured out.

    Ah OK I didn't think of closing the app, I'll try that. I did reboot my phone though. Maybe it was a yahoo problem.

    I get that a lot too, but just from deleting straight from my phone. Sometimes I just need to open mail up and let it sit a minute and fully re sync itself.

    Here's what worked for me.

    Go to setting app
    Go to mail, calendars,...
    Select the email account if you have more than one
    Slide email switch off
    Force reboot device
    Turn phone back on, then turn mail back on.
