This has been discussed frequently on the Evolution mailing list. See
for example:
http://gnome-evolution-general.1774414.n4.nabble.com/The-Unread-count-bug-revisited-td2362812.html

Basically it's a bug. Recent versions of Evo are less prone than before,
but it still occurs once in a while.

Something that might help is:

        #!/bin/sh
        
        cd ~/.local/share/evolution/mail/
        for i in `find . -name folders.db`
        	do
        	echo "Rebuilding Table $i"
        	sqlite3 $i "vacuum;"
        done
        
Note that this is for Evo 3.x. Also, be sure to completely shut down Evo
before running the above ("evolution --force-shutdown").

If that doesn't work, try the Evo list, but be sure to say which version
of Evo you have (Help->Status), which you neglected to do here.
