My top 5 email pet peeves:
1. Fake order confirmations (heart attack by email)
2. Fake RE: and Fake FWD:
3. All images + No alt-text
4. Bait-and-switch subject lines
5. Getting a sale email after I purchased
Anything to add?

I just opened an email and audio from the email immediately started playing and I NEVER want to experience that again. I didn’t even know audio in an email was a thing.
