    OK so I was trying out the new Mail feature where you can mark all as 'Read' or 'Unread', I first marked them all as 'Unread' then marked them back as 'Read', problem is that my Mail icon is now showing a ton of notifications yet actually in the Mail app there are no emails that need reading?! I've tried rebooting the phone but it's still the same:

    FYI I've also just tried turning Mail 'off', restarting the phone and then turning Mail back 'on' but I still have the notifications

    I've also just tried removing my mail account from the phone and then setting it up again, and still I have the same issue.

    Sorted! I actually had to go to the web version of my inbox and clear them all there for some reason! I had to mark them all as 'Unread' and then 'Unread'.

    Not quite sure why the iPhones Mail app couldn't manage to do that? After all it managed to mess them up in the first place.

    Glad you got it sorted out. I was just playing with Mail trying to replicate the problem.

    I wasn't aware of the new Mark All Read feature, which has been a long time in coming, so thank you for the info.
