My "unread e-mails" list has been increasing steadily - I have no unread e-mails, & all the filter folders etc. in my web mail are EMPTY. In other words, there are NO unread e-mails - none in any of my Thunderbird folders, OR in the web mail folders. How do I clear this? It is by this time saying 10!

Reproducible: Didn't try
What version of Thunderbird are you using ?

Ca you try to right click on the faulty folders and select properties -> rebuild index to see if that fixes it ?

Seeing what look like the same thing since about a week ago. Local folders - Inbox indicates one unread but I can't find it. Nothing in the unread column, nothing in bold as an unread item.

Right-click, compact did not change anything.
