I just got flooded with five emails, each telling my that my filter on SE has 255 new questions available (it doesn't).

Maybe SE and you have different definitions of "new" :) – Ladybug Killer Jul 8 '11 at 19:21
If you buy a used car it is new to you :) – user7116 Jul 8 '11 at 19:22
Well, either SE changed its definition from yesterday, or traffic has increased by a factor of 100. :P – Jeremy Banks Jul 8 '11 at 19:22
@Jeremy: I believe the previously reported issue with the tag filter not sending emails has been resolved, given what you're seeing. – user7116 Jul 8 '11 at 19:26
What is this magnificent email client/RSS reader that you're using? – Lorem Ipsum Jul 8 '11 at 22:58

This was due to a bug recovering from StackExchange filters (tag sets) aren't updating and emails have stopped?.

That's been fixed so things should be proceeding as normal now.
