Mail displays wrong number of new mails

Hi guys,

My Mail has some problems with the new mail number on the dock. Anyone know how can I reset that number to normal?

Thanks.

What version of OSX do you have? Is it always out by the same amount? Have you tried restarting?

It's Leopard. Actually it always pluses 4 to the real number of mails. Even if I have no unread email it still shows 4

wrong # of emails

I have the same problem.
I tried this on two different Macs (Leopard and Leopard Server). still same...
Only the dock icon shows the correct number.
The number next to Inbox is stuck at 286 ?

Does anyone have a solution for this?

Try selecting all messages in the inbox (Apple+A) and then marking all as read (Shift+Apple+U). Hopefully then both counters will display no new messages

I tried that. It doesn't work. The counter on the dock gets updated, but no change on Mail. It is still stuck at 286.
