Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

For this question in SuperUser an answer is showing in my inbox but there's no answer shown in the question.

Does this mean the answer is going to appear in due course (and the popup inbox is just getting ahead of us) or has the poster already deleted it (shame?!?) in which case will the Inbox eventually remove it also?

The post owner deleted the "answer". Would have been deleted as not an answer in that state anyway.

I don't have 10k reputation on SuperUser to check for certain, but psychic debugging would point to the answerer (or somebody else) has deleted the answer.
