As for myself, most of the time emails are sent from people who are
unfamiliar with our talk pages system, and for who it's simpler to send an
email. Most frequent email being : "Why have you deleted my article ?"

Emails are also used by regular editors/admins who simply don't want to
write some of their messages on my public talk page. This can happen during
edit wars or other conflicts.

Last but not least, I've received emails from blocked editors asking me to
unblock them because admin X had blocked them "unfairly".
