Default Phantom Emails

Please Login to Remove!

I have an issue with my email counter. I did a quick search and found only stuff related to the voice mail message counter.

Basically, I recently switched to a Gmail account.
As part of that process I took all the email from my old account and moved them from archive folders to the inbox. This was because Gmail will only retrieve messages from an inbox.

I still had my BB setup with my old account and the phone proceeded to try and download all the messages that recently appeared in the inbox (2000+).
It didn't know how to stop it, so I let it run its course. The phone finally gave up at about 180 messages.

With my inbox nice and full I updated my BB to use my new gmail account.
All the old email messages were cleared from the phone. But, they are still being counted somehow. Even when I clear my emails from the phone, it still shows that I have 181 messages.

I'm trying to avoid wiping the phone since I would like to keep all the text messages I have.

Any idea how I can get rid of these phantom messages?
