When sending this email, did you annotate it with the language you
wrote it in? How would email software know how to annotate it when
creating a notification for it? Requirements that cannot be met are
bad and will result in bogus values which is why e.g. "en" today is
currently not really indicative of the actual language of a document.
This knowledge should've been reflected in WCAG by now.
