Bad unread Mail inbox count

My Mail app in iOS 8 seems to think I have 7k + unread emails in my main inbox. Actually, I have none. Anyone know how to force a mailbox to rebuild in Mail for iOS 8?

While I'm at it, can anyone else believe the Apple still hasn't provided a way to mass-delete email?

This isn't only a rhetorical question. It may be related to my bad unread email count, because I used the select/hold down the move button/deselect hack to try and mass delete email from this account. Maybe this is not a healthy thing to do in iOS 8. ??
