    sometimes it is it among your other inbox messages, what i mean it doesn't appear as the lastest message in your inbox. I've experienced that before, i had to go through my 400 + inbox messages to locate it. Bulk messages don't count as new meesages.

    It's because your browser doesn't refresh the page everytime you access it. It only recovers the information in your cache file so if that file was created when there was 1 message in your inbox then it will keep saying that until the cache gets refreshed

    My in box continuously showed 37 messages before I figured it out. It's because I filed a lot of junk messages without reading them. Go into your files, any unread messages will be highlighted. Just click on it, you don't have to read it just open it. Or delete it.
