Yes, I've had email from stations worked in a contest and I just ignore it,
even if doing so decreases my score.  In your example, if the KB6 had
removed the QSO from his log but not emailed you, then you would have been
subject to whatever NIL deductions were for that contest.  Getting an email
shouldn't change anything.
