Can someone please tell me what the small-sized number that appears next to the Yahoo mail icon on the desktop of this iPad Mini means? On my iPad it stands as "1805."

I had thought it was the the number of email messages in the Inbox. But that may not be right, as it does not decrease after I delete a bunch of messages.

???

Thanks. .... wdc

Generally it is the number of unread messages.

In Gmail with their tags for organization method, the number can reflect all unread messages. Especially if the Mail app is configured to Archive emails instead of delete, the unread count will remain the same.

Marking the email read before deleting or after deleting should reduce the number.

That is also assuming that if you are on iOS 11, you have the 11.2 that resolves issues with the mail counts.
