    Windows 10 Mail Indicates Phantom Unread Message


    I am having a problem with Windows 10 Mail in which the icon in my task bar, and the icon in the start menu, indicates that there is one (1) unread message available. However, all messages have been retrieved and read.

    I had this problem before, quite some time ago, and reported it here in another thread. At that time, the solution offered solved my problem. However, this time, the solution is not working. I can't seem to get rid of the phantom unread email count.

    :)

  2. Mail App

    I use the simple Microsoft Mail application on my Surface Book. When I open the app, it says I have three unread messages in my inbox, however, I am certain that I do not. How do I get these phantom unread messages to go away?

  3. Mail App issues - unread mail color

    Read emails in the Mail app does not have the highlighted bar next to the message in the inbox. Unread Mail will have a vertical blue bar or other color next to the message to indicate it is unread.
