True, but only applicable to email you send.  Unless you've configured your system to produce delivery and read receipts, it's nearly impossible to prove you read an email.  And if you don't have a copy of it, it'll often be impossible to prove it was even ever delivered to your mail server.  (Think retention policies for mail server log files, to protect yourself on both ends of this stick.)
It's often a safe bet to assume the other techie had adopted a policy of laziness.
