My iMap mail (AOL) indicates I have 70 e-mails! Not true..

Specs: Macintosh
When I first checked my AOL mail after upgrading my IPhone 4 to IOS7, it showed I have 70+ e-mails although I had only 3 new - the rest already read but not deleted. It still is in that mode. I can read the new e-mails. Someone suggested to me that it was a POP Mail vs. IMAP issue. I use IMAP. I tried erasing old (read) e-mails but that didn't make any difference - number doesn't decrement below 70. Any ideas on what the specific problem is and what the fix is? After reading an e-mail, my red number doesn't go below 60

Check your email account preferences on your iPhone to make sure incoming messages are set to "delete from server after downloading". Sounds like that isn't happenning at present.

Thank you for your reply Phil. However, I discovered the answer a few days ago. Turns out that unlike my older operating system, IOS7, also was registering unread e-mails at my address in addition to AOL. Why prior to IOS 7, it never did that before, is a mystery. However, looks like IOS7 recognized that I had more than one e-mail address. So, now I can select in "mailboxes" which e-mail address I want to check. The number of unread e-mails now goes to zero on my homepage when I read them all.
