I noticed without configuring the sync user profile service the name and telephone number come from the AD ( domain\newUser, Some Number, New User Name ). Why not the email ( or other camps)? is this some sort of AD configuration or Sharepoint default action?

This is the default behavior, you will need to map AD fields to User Profile properties manually in the UPS to retrieve other values.
