It is the number of unread mails in its subfolders. This will only be shown if 
a folder is colapsed and has subfolders with unread mail in them. If you 
expand it, each subfolder will display its own number of unread mails, the sum 
of which will be the second number that was previously displayed for their 
parent folder.
