massive notifications spike


I renamed a project as well as it's prefix (ID) today which appears to have caused a massive e-mail notifications spike.  The project has approx 6k issues.  Users do have saved searches setup with notifications.  We use Amazon SES to send mails and this caused us to go over our quota (10k per day).  Can someone explain to me what caused this and how in the future I might avoid it?

Hello Jerry,

That's strange. Could you please, provide us with the screenshot of that notification? On which action it was sent?

Thank you.
