    Default [2.0] Incorrect amount of unread emails displayed

    Hi

    I am currently using an pwned 2.0 iphone edge.

    Recently the email counter has started playing up and whenever I have no unread emails the iphone says I have -1 emails. When I receive an email it acts as thought there is no mail and if I have say 4 unread emails it says I have 3.

    I have tried deleting the account and re adding it as well as a hard reset on the phone. The account is a gmail one set up by selecting gmail from the mail setup screen.

    Does anyone know a quick fix to this?

    Cheers

    I've seen it happening on POP3 email servers that have buggy software.

    On 1.1.4 a few months ago I solved a similar issue in my wife's mailbox by vacating it completely by moving all wanted emails (read and unread) to local folders on her desktop email app and removing all unwanted email. This zeroed the count.
    It helped but soon it happened again while she was erasing emails, the iPhone started updating the inbox and the count got screwed up again.
    I finally solved it by switching her to .MAC (non of those advertised MobileMe issues for me BTW) that runs IMAP instead of POP.

    I haven't seen it happening on 2.0. Maybe Gmail is reporting incorrectly the count... for this, the above suggestion in cleaning out your inbox should help.

    BTW: The only way to get rid of a corrupt value within the iPhone is to really start from scratch and restore your device.

    But you can also setup gmail with IMAP. Maybe that helps, too.
