Actually none of these are quite the most important. I think the most
important aspect of the email interface is being able to submit additional
information on a bug.

I find it frustrating to receive an email saying "user foo said foo" and not
be able to hit reply to send a response. Instead I have to start a browser,
click a link in the email, log in with a username and password, ...

If something sends me an email it should expect me to respond in the same
medium.
