So i had like 4 email accounts (all yahoo) synced on my iPhone 4S with iOS 5.1.1 and the badge gave me real number of new unread emails only. Like 2-3 or whatever the number of NEW unread emails were there.

But yesterday i updated to iOS 7.0.4 and restored my backup and now the badge reads like 4500 unread emails. How do i fix this and make the badge show only NEW unread emails and not ALL like it is showing now.

Tried but the Mark All does not mark all the emails and probably the only emails that show up in initial view, about 50 or so i think and not the thousands unread that i have.

Hey thanks. Last i mentioned that what you told did not work but then tried again and now no more thousands of emails badge. Thanks a lot for a genuine suggestion. Appreciate it a lot.

Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Click on your Account > Click Delete Account.

Problem solved.
Thanks....But no thanks.
