Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

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
@yoda: Sparrow, it's non-free ($10). – Jeremy Banks Jul 9 '11 at 2:42
Thank you! Checking it out right now – Lorem Ipsum Jul 9 '11 at 4:40

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.
