    Discussion

    Your implementation of this method should dismiss the mail composition view. Implementation of this method is optional but expected.

    If the user has opted to send the email created by this interface, that email should be queued in the user’s Mail program by the time this method is called. If an error occurred while queueing the email message, the error parameter contains an error object indicating the type of failure that occurred.
