I get stale message notifications fairly regularly on the Playbook using Bridge. If all of my messages are read and the Playbook still shows a new message, I mark a message as unread, then mark it again as read and that usually clears the notification. If it's an appointment notification, I usually have to acknowledge the appointment on the Blackberry instead of on the Playbook.
The icon to mark a message as read or unread is right in the middle of the screen on the bottom toolbar line. It looks like two envelopes on top of each other, one yellow and one white.
I have never rebooted or reinstalled an update just to clear a message notification.

I thought that's what the message notification was. It's an envelope icon with a number beside it on the status line on the main screen. The flashing red corner tells you when you have new messages, the envelope icon tells you how many unread messages you have. That envelope icon often tells me I have unread messages when I don't. I just explained how I clear that when it's not correct.

I was just able to reproduce the problem I offered a solution for. I'll describe it in detail here in case it is different that what the original poster was describing.
I just received a new email and read it on my Blackberry. The Playbook continued to show a new message notification even though I had just read the message. The notification consisted of a flashing red corner, a white dot with an exclamation point in it and the number 1 next to it, and a yellow envelope with a red star and the number 1 next to it.
I opened the Bridge email app and could see that there are actually no unread messages since I had read the message on the Blackberry already. The upper left corner stopped flashing red after opening Bridge email, but the status bar was still showing the other notifications (the exclamation mark and the envelope with the red star).
I marked the email that I had read on the Blackberry as unread on the Playbook, then marked it again as read. All new mail notifications were then cleared from the status bar.
This problem is intermittent for me. Most of the time, the Playbook updates the status bar correctly. Sometimes it doesn't. It happens 2 or 3 times a day for me and I usually get around 150 messages per day. Marking a message as unread and read is how I fix the status bar messages when they are incorrect. Like I said earlier, I have never had to reboot or reinstall the OS to clear the new message notification.

Quilla467 - Your method did work but now:
I have read all three emails and I now have, in the status bar, a gold coloured envelope with a '1' next to it. Clicking the envelope the message 'No new notifications for messages' appears.
When I highlight the three messages as Unread the count now shows as 4 in the status bar and the white circle and exclamation mark reappears. Clicking the white circle lists the three emails. I again read the emails and the white circle disappears leaving the gold envelope and '1' next to it.
How do I get rid of the gold envelope that simply says - 'No new notifications for messages' ?!
