    Could you have some saved mail that you have forgotten about?

    It's happened to me as well. What occasionally happens is if you delete a conversation (as in, with a back and forth between you and someone else), but there was another message coming in that you didn't read yet. So basically your phone no longer has the conversation thread at all, but the server's telling it there's a message.

    Hop onto your browser and delete the message from there.

    Have you checked your account online to see if there is an unread message hiding in one of your folders?

    If you delete messages on your phone, but not from the server and your server has a size limit so that the complete message is not downloaded to your computer when you retreive mail you will end up with phantom messages in your trash folder. There appears to be no way to delete them as when you open the trash folder it shows nothing there and your server also shows nothing. It's the way it is. Frustrating.
