We are in agreement, I think.  I was reacting to your going beyond not using
Emacs as the MUA to not using email at all (for emacs -Q.  My guess is that you
misspoke and that we agree.

If we don't agree about that, at least we seem to agree about the rest (no
config to report a bug using emacs -Q, etc.).
