Do you have other identities maybe the unread mail is in there.My other account shows like yours does.

thanks vog super link you know your stuff and yes les2 i have just deleted another id as some hacker got hold of it and was sending e mail viruses to it so i cancelled it with my isp as well so that could be a reason the alerts are building up .many thanks for the replies
