Incorrect unread mail number

My unread mail on one account on I phone 5   went to 15000.00, I have no unread mail.

Quit Mail. Force quit if necessary.
Back up all data. That means you know you can restore the Mail database, no matter what happens.
Triple-click the line below on this page to select it:
~/Library/Mail/V2/MailData/Envelope Index
Copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C). In the Finder, select
Go ▹ Go to Folder
from the menu bar. Paste into the box that opens (command-V), then press return.
A Finder window will open with a file selected. Move the selected file to the Desktop, leaving the window open. Other files in the folder may have names that begin with "Envelope Index". Move those files, if any, to the Trash.
Log out and log back in. Relaunch Mail. It should prompt you to re-import your messages. You may get a warning that the index is corrupt and that Mail has to quit. Click OK.
Test. If Mail now works as expected, you can delete the file you moved to the Desktop. Otherwise, post your results.

  • Wrong number of unread Mails in Dock icon

    I have set Mail to check all mail folders to display the number of unread mails in the dock icon because I'm using IMAP accounts and have incoming mails filtered into different folders.
    However, even if I mark all mails as read in every folder the dock icon still shows one unread message. I can't seem to find that damned mail.
    Can I somehow reset the count? How do I find, which mail Mail still thinks is unread?
    Thanks in advance.

    Create a smart folder based on mail status is unread. Then go to that folder and you should find the mail
    An "unread mail" smart folder is quite handy for other things as well, such as easily finding all unread mail that's scattered across all those folders -- much more efficient

  • Unread Mail Count Number Alignment

    The little bubble that displays the number of unread mail messages next to a folder/mailbox is not aligning correctly. It is flush with the top of the bubble instead of centered.
    I didn't install or change programs, fonts, or settings. I restarted and the issue started. I've tried clearing font cashes and preferences, but no luck.
    Any suggestions short of reinstalling the system?

    Well, believe it or not, this is a font issue. You’ve probably either disabled or removed a font that Mail needs to work properly (e.g. Helvetica):

  • IPhone 4S Mail All Inboxes shows 4,294,967,289 unread mail messages

    1. On my iPhone 4S in the Mail app, if I go into the Mailboxes and look at my Inboxes it shows 4,294,967,289 mail messages (see screen shot). This number is clearly incorrect, as I don't have any unread emails, and my accounts don't have anywhere near this number of emails. Of course my mail icon on the home screen doesn't show anything because the number is (incorrectly) too large.
    2. On my iPad 2 in the Mail app (with the same iCloud and gmail accounts all synced up), if I go into the Mailboxes and look at my Inboxes it shows no unread mail messages, which is correct. If I get a new message, then it will show the number of unread messages accurately (1 or 2 or whatever).
    Has anyone seen this problem? I deleted all my mail accounts in the iPhone and added them back again, but that did not correct the problem. I am up to date on all software as well.
    Thanks for the help.

    The number 4,294,967,290 corresponds to negative 6 in base 32.
    It's a bug with the way gmail is reporting unread messages, or the way your iPhone is counting them. A restore should fix it.
    Short of restoring your iPhone try this: Make sure you have read all your messages and the unread message count remains 4,294,967,290. Then, send six messages to your gmail account. Do not open them.
    If that resets your "unread mail" count to zero then never open those six messages

  • Bogus Unread Mail Count?

    Hi,
    I did a synch this morning and seem to have buggered the 'unread' mail count
    that badges the Phone Icon.
    I also upgraded to OSX 10.5.7...
    It asserts that there are 11 unread messages but I cannot find any...
    How can I clear the incorrect mail count?
    Thanks
    Jerry

    I figured it out...
    I think when I did the sync it added a new mail
    account that I had created on my mac for tracking
    my wifes medical correspondence...
    The badge count matched the number of unread mails in
    the new account.

  • Can't get rid of unread mail icon--shows 2 unread messages but can't find any

    I've got a smart mailbox that shows unread messages so I can easily see what new and unread mail I have.  The problem is it gives me the notification icon that indicates I have two unread messages, yet the mailbox does not show any messages as unread...  This isn't a huge problem, but the Mail icon in my dock always shows that I have new mail, and the notification icon is small enough that I can't always clearly see if it's the "usual 2" or a higher number.  What could be causing this and how do I either find the unread messages or get this icon reduced to where it only shows me REAL unread messages?

  • Mail Badge Does Not Update # of Unread Mail Messages

    My iPhone is stubbornly refusing to update my number of MobileMe unread mail messages. For some reason, it is displaying 6 more unread messages than there actually are. No if I have no unread messages, the badge reads 6. If I have 5 unread messages, the badge reads 11.
    I access MobileMe via my iMac, iPad, and iPhone (iOS 4.1). My iMac and iPad aren't having this issue. Any suggestions about how to fix this problem? Thanks in advance!

    Hi,
    Did you mean the connected Microsoft account used to Mail APP and all Windows 8.1 computer?
    If yes, it's indeed as what you describe. Since Windows 8.1 Mail app has been designed such a way that, it will keep you in logged in mode all the time so that you will be able to check your emails without logging in to the webmail. In other words, it's
    always keep session. Therefore, it wouldn't ask credential to confirm.
    However, this is not only depending on Mail App but also related with mail type security. Based on my test, Adding an Exchange email account, it will prompt to check password setting at once if you change password. Adding an Hotmail account, nothing happened
    after change the password.

  • Lots of UnRead mail (and I do mean LOTS)...?

    Howdy,
    I just fired up my iPhone mail client, and saw something of a surprise:
    It shows that I have "2,147,483,645" unread messages.
    Given that on a busy day, I receive fifteen or twenty, over Two Billion does seem excessive.
    (I am not stretching this by the way, that number is just what displays.)
    What might be going on here?
    Sincere thanks,
    Kenneth

    Hi Jennifer,
    Thanks for the speedy response, and it does seem that may be the right answer, but...
    I believe that when I checked using the phone, I had my other (laptop) email client off. But after that launched it again.
    Then, when I received your suggestion, I experimented further by closing the laptop client, and then checking the iPhone.
    The spurious display was no longer visible.
    In any case, can you say something more about this problem?
    Assuming that you are correct in your diagnosis, where would that wild unread message number come from?
    Sincere thanks again,
    Kenneth

  • Unread mail on dock icon?

    Hi,
    Been using Mail for a couple of months now but I don't see the number of unread mails thing on the mail icon in the dock. Why is this? Does it only show unread mails in the inbox? I use rules to filter mail into smartboxes.
    Also, this applies to any app really, but what is the difference between 'Hide' (Apple-H) and 'Close Window' (Apple-W)??
    I've often wondered.
    Thanks,
    iLee

    Yes, it only shows messages in the inbox. There's an app called DockStar that will allow you to modify this behaviour:
    http://www.ecamm.com/mac/dockstar/
    Hide hides the whole application - so if there are multiple windows they will all disappear (but are still open so that when you select the app again they'll all be in the same position).
    Close closes the window - so you would need to open a new window to get back to it.

  • Why suddenly did Mail (6.3) stop docking unread mail

    Why suddenly did Mail (6.3) stop docking unread mail?
    320   iMac, 4 gb ram, not many addons or plugins

    Maybe settings have changed. Open Mail, go to the Mail menu (on the menu bar) > Preferences > General, and check the option you have selected to see the number of unread messages in the Dock icon

  • Total unread mail count display

    I believe the iPhone/ios 6.1.4 displays only the total number of unread emails in the top level of the inbox. But I have rules that move unread mail to multiple subfolders, and I'd love to be able to have a total count of unread items in the inbox and all subfolders. I use a smart mailbox to do this on the iMac, but the absence of smart mailboxes means that I'm often unaware of unread items in subfolders when I only have access to my iPhone and iPad. I'd appreciate any thoughts.

    Fact is, the iOS mail app is not as sophisticated as the mail app on your Mac, & local rules are not synced to your phone. There is no fix.
    All you can do is suggest an enhancement to Apple:

  • IPhone with Exchange 2010 account. Add "unread mail" folder?

    Hi,
    Is there any way to make search folders appear (like unread mail) in the Mail app in iOS using our corporate exchange account?
    If not are there any alternatives?
    Thank you,
    C.L.

    Unread is a smart folder so no. But you can create a rule to move all new emails to your own "unread folder" you have to create. Just create a rule where you are in the To or CC of any email. Then either send a copy to that folder or all mail to the folder. This will give you an easy way to find the email, but creates duplicates in your Outlook Unread folder. Kind of a pain but gets the emails on your phone into the same area. Hope this helps.

  • How to access unread mails of all users in Exchange server without having Passwords and without giving mailbox access to other user.

    Hi all,
       I am using Exchange server 2013, my task is to create
    Service , that
    need's to  monitor continuously for new mails of all Mailboxes in
    my server. if any user got new mail i need to get that Mail Subject, Mail Body, Sender Email Address [From emailId] .  
    Limitation
    : I don't have Passwords of mailboxes , so i gave all mailbox access permission  to one user , then i completed this   service using below code.
     But now, Client
    not willing to give Mailbox Permissions to one user because of security problems.
    How can i do this without passwords and without giving permissions to other user ?
    i don't want all mailbox access , i just need only
    access Mail Subject , Body and Sender mail address .
    How can i achieve
    this ?
    Process i follow
    => I created new user in server , and then i gave full permissions of all Mailboxes to newly created user[ex: james] in database level.
         i use below command for giving permissions in database level.
    Get-MailboxDatabase -Identity <Database Name> | Add-ADPermission -User <User> -AccessRights GenericAll
     => using below code i am searching unread mails of all user Mailboxes and then getting Subject, body and Sender Email            address . here i am have list of users,
    ExchangeService service = new ExchangeService(ExchangeVersion.Exchange2013);
    service.Credentials = new WebCredentials("[email protected]", "password");
    service.AutodiscoverUrl("[email protected]");  foreach (Object obj in usersList) // here i have Mailbox users list in usersList
                 { var userMailbox = new Mailbox(obj.user);
    var folderId = new FolderId(WellKnownFolderName.Inbox, userMailbox);
    SearchFilter.IsEqualTo filter1 = new SearchFilter.IsEqualTo(EmailMessageSchema.IsRead, false);
    var itemView = new ItemView(50);
    var userItems = service.FindItems(folderId, filter1, itemView);
    foreach (var item in userItems)
    item.Load();
    var senderEmail = ((EmailMessage)item).From;
    var subject = item.Subject;
    var body = item.Body;

    You would need to check that possibilities via WebServices but suggest you to post this in Development forum to get help from programmers....
