He told you about her in an email? That kind of sucks. I don't have a problem with it if its an announcement that "we have to talk." If it was an announcement that shuts down communication then that sucks and to me wouldn't be okay.
Sometimes I send an email as a heads up to people when I am feeling overly emotional but want them to know what's going on and that I want to talk about it later. In this day and age email, text, video chat, whatever have taken on a whole new meaning in peoples lives. It really depends on what was implied in what he said.
Anyone want to be friends on Facebook?
