Mail says I have 3,684 unread messages in one of my pop accounts but when I go to the account or to unread messages, they’re not there. I heard they’re called ghosts. Which seems appropriate.
I read the instructions for getting rid of them here on appletoolbox but no joy.
I checked online to make sure there were no unread messages, though the issue isn’t with Gmail which is the only mail with a constant connect.
I tried following the instructions 6 times rebooting after each step. Every time… turn the account off, 0 unread messages (of course), reboot, turn it back on… still 3,864 unread messages, Rinse and repeat 5x more. I even tried turning off SSL as one reader suggested. Did that a few times too. Nada. Messages still not there but Mail says they are.
I am at a complete loss of what to do now. Can someone help?

Have you looked at your email via a web browser instead of the mobile app? Open email via browser and search for ‘unread’. It should show you all those unread email . Mark them as read.
