I don't 100% agree with that.

E.g., there are better protocols when you need real-time conversations,
because (internet) email isn't necessarily good at that (by design).

And I'm sure there are other circumstances or purposes where another
protocol/standard is more appropriate.

But in general, email is pretty good.  :)
