Deletions are now reflected* in the inbox.

There is, of course, a natural race condition; wherein you load a page with a notice right before the originating user deletes the answer/comment. That's not going to be addressed.

As for edits, we're unlikely to every reflect those in the inbox. Its a lot of trouble (technically), when you're almost always just going to go and read the post/comment.

*This is "going forward," old items that are in the inbox that correspond to deleted posts or comments will remain. At least for the time being.

I had read this, however it still shows in the inbox many hours after and with refresh I understand the race condition would only happen if it shows in the list before it is deleted and I had not refreshed. –  John Jul 6 '11 at 11:09
    
Unless I have mistaken the meaning, it does actually say: "old items that are in the inbox that correspond to deleted posts or comments will remain." –  Thursagen Jul 6 '11 at 11:11
    
Because that was prefixed with going forward I though that "old" referred to the time before the answer/fix was applied. I could be wrong though –  John Jul 6 '11 at 12:00
    
I don't know... makes some sense. –  Thursagen Jul 6 '11 at 12:04
