They are skilled at royally ignoring emails. They don’t open mail and even if they do, they seldom respond.

Sometimes, they even miss important emails, much to the annoyance of others. Their inbox often runs into thousands of unread mails. Sometimes they use emails to stay in touch only with certain people, and do not appreciate mails from unwelcome senders.
