I am facing a peculiar situation in my Yahoo e-mail account. It is showing 1 unread message since two months, while in fact, there is no such message. I have checked it minutely by looking at all the pages of Inbox. There is no unread mail in Bulk folder as well.

What may be the possible cause? How can I get rid of the same as it is somewhat annoying? Thanks in advance.

have you tried clicking on the "folders/edit" tab? Apr 4, 2005

sometimes this finds a message that's not been read but isn't showing in the inbox. otherwise, just write to yahoo customer support and I think they'll click something and make it go away.

Have you tried the option for showing only Unread Messages? Under “Inbox” you should see: “View: All messages”. Click the little arrow and select “Unread messages”. It worked for me. I hope it will work for you, too.

Junk? Apr 5, 2005

I do not have a Yahoo! email account therefore I do not know what the typical folder structure is like in Yahoo!
But when I read your question I recalled a similar situation I faced once with my Hotmail account.
Finally I found the misterious unread message was in the junk email folder, where it had been automatically filtered into by the default settings.
