    When I updated to GM on both my iPhone 5 and iPad 3 it showed my mail apps as having approximately 5000+ unread emails. Assumes its picked up everyone on my mail server and it was funny at first but how to do clear it? Tried going in and then doing 'mark all' but it only seems to select the emails you can see at that point and not all so? Any suggestions? It use that you had a choice of how many emails to download at a time but that seems to have disappeard?

    Sorry to you mean turn off mail for that mail account in the settings or delete the account and reset it up? Don't quite know what you mean by logout?

    Delete all you email accounts from the device and re add them.

    Sounds like the OP may be setting up as a POP instead of IMAP.

    That also may be a reason. What kind of email do you have OP? EX. Gmail.com live.com aol.com

    It's my own domain and I have bought pop mail package for the domain. I just upgraded from iOS 6 so settings are as they were.

    Won't that be a problem if I normally access my email from several devices? Doesn't IMAP mean once it's downloaded on one device it wont show or download on another? So is this a change in how iOS 7 handles pop because it was fine until the upgrade?

    Nope IMAP to make it simple keeps it all in the cloud and all devices sync to that so all will show the same thing.
