I then proceeded to do a recount because the count was messed up from some issues that were in 4.1.7

This count issue seems to be related with Redis cache. Which is already in my roadmap. I am checking email issue.

We are also having the same issue, people who are no longer subscribers are getting an email notification every time we answered questions. It has resulted in our IP being blocked. I have turned off the plugin for now but would appreciate some help
