"Should we be verifying customers' identity via email when the email they are contacting us from is the same email they used to purchase a product from us?"

I assume you are asking if you need to verify the identity of the customer when he/she contacts you in order to excersice the data subject's rights. The answer is yes, you need to be sure that the indivual requesting to access, delete, modify personal data is the legitimate data subjects.
