Here's a snapshot of the current options for managing filter e-mail notifications:

filter email updates

Whereas i'd love to have more options to manage my notifications frequency:

    That's asking for a lot of the SO servers, to send an email to you any time there is a question posted... I personally would hate it, it'd clog up my inbox. – Richard J. Ross III Jun 26 '12 at 11:26

    The mail server also won't like it. – nhahtdh Jun 26 '12 at 11:33
  • why the downvote? it's a request, and i wasn't referring to the solution implementation, just proposing what i think is a desired feature. – Eliran Malka Jun 26 '12 at 11:57
  • another thing - this feature could be limited for use with new filters or those with no more than a few questions. – Eliran Malka Jun 26 '12 at 11:59

    @EliranMalka Votes indicate community support for a feature, which factors into how SE prioritizes their development resources. Downvoting a feature request indicates members of the community don't want SE to devote resources to this over other, ostensibly more important requests. – user149432 Jun 26 '12 at 12:55

  • +1, but only for the Dr Seuss reference, not for the request. – Mr Lister Jul 13 '12 at 7:23
