if you are added as nosy on a tracker item (which happens when you make a comment or you can do yourself) then you get emailed about new comments.
That's good, but...
only going to the tracker to add responses.
is not so good. If the goal is to ensure that all previous discussion on a given issue is reliably recorded, then email replies ought to be archived under the relevant ticket automatically.
For me at least, having to go somewhere special to post a reply would be too error-prone. I get a large number of Python-related messages in my inbox from a number of sources, and I don't usually pay much attention to exactly where they're coming from. I just hit reply-all and trust that it will go somewhere sensible.
