Hello @jigar-bhanushali thanks for the ticket and patch. If I understand correct you're indicating an email is sent even if a user isn't associated to said email. If so then that's actually expected behaviour as commenters don't require an account in most cases but as they're supplying their personal information we need a way to export/erase their data as well. There's been some discussion in providing better messaging or suppressing the request when there's no data associated to the email and would make more sense to do a check on if there's data associated over if there's a user associated.

Bumping off trunk as this has been the behaviour since 4.9.6. Happy to discuss further @jigar-bhanushali but am going to label as an item to potentially close.
