I'm sure that would work, but why make it complicated?! :-)
I went to the account which had the phantom unread e-mails, went up to the search box and entered "unread" and the 2 phantom e-mails that had been bothering me 'magically' appeared! I simply clicked on both of them and no longer have any phantom e-mails.

Go to mail settings and make sure that your account is a pop account and not imap. I t worked for me.

I must of tried every trick aforementioned and nothing worked until I did the following:
1. Back up to Cloud
2.Go to settings
4. Scroll down to Reset
5. Tap Erase all content and settings
Then Back up and the Unread numbers will be gone.

My inbox indicated three thousand plus phantom unread emails. I did your trick with what really was in my inbox and it worked! Thank you!!

Here is a much simpler way that woked for me.
1) send yourself a 'test' email.
2) open it
3) press edit
4) mark all as read
5) Highlight and delete.
6) back out (you may have even more 'ghost emails at this stage. don't worry
7) repeat steps 1-6. you should have no 'ghosts'

I lost you after instruction number 3).

Sorry...not really tech savy instructions.
so, after pressing 'edit' the 'mark all as read' option should display. press that, then delete, and, 'done'.
for some reason this doulbled the number of 'pantom' emails on my phone (a 5) but repeating the whole process erased them all. make sense?
The 'Search 'unread' suggestion is probably easier in hindsight.
