I've got more than 250,000 messages spread across multiple email accounts
loaded into WLM and haven't come across this problem (although I haven't had
that many unread admittedly).
One way to do it would be to sign into the web interface (www.hotmail.com
whichever provider you use) and mark all as read or clean them up in the web
