There is a strange behaviour on careers.stackoverflow.com.

When somebody sends a new message the counter 'Email inquiries from employers' increases.

It seems that it must be only increased for a new contact request but not for an every new message.

Here is my state:

enter image description here

I have only 2 message threads (e.g. 2 contacts) but the counter shows 12 email inquiries.

Is it a feature?

The fix for this is on it's way out now. The cache for old values on this is 6 hours or a new message, so it might be this afternoon (EST) before you see the updated numbers. For the record, we are not including threads which were started with the "Ask this employer a question" feature.
