    My email shows that I have unread mail in the junk folder. I go to the junk folder and it's empty. It was up to 500+. I then deleted the email account and it fixed the 500+ emails. Now it's starting over and it's adding up again. Anyone else having this problem?

    Is this with the stock mail app or another mail service app?

    Deleting the account does not delete the emails. They remain on the server. When you log back in they're still there.

    Today it seemed that Apple's iCloud servers were acting up, especially late this morning. Also, you can try shutting down your phone and restarting it.

    This problem has been going on longer than today. At least a month.. Deleting the account did take away 500 + showing unread in junk mail folder but not there ( folder is empty). Looking from my desktop folder is empty there too.. It's just annoying having a # showing as unread when it's empty

    Try toggling off badge app icon in the notifications. Notifications-> Mail App-> and the desired mail account. sync the mail folders and then toggle back on the badge app icon again if you desire.
