1. from gallery share an image via email
2. enter TO: address and hit send
3. see the "sending email" screen with spinner

Expected: eventually sends and goes back to Email or Gallery (i don't know)

Actual: says "sending email" forever, and email never received

bug 865274 is about the regression in step 3 of the STR.

this bug is just about having a cancel button there on that screen.

That bug was about sending failing, this bug is about there not being a way to cancel sending.  But send-in-background is on the short-list for v1.2 features, so this bug will probably be mooted in the 1.2 timeframe.
Did this happen in 1.2?
Keywords: feature
Send in background is now targeted at 1.4 on the even shorter short-list.
This is a somewhat common problem for me, e.g., if I'm walking away from the office and just about to get out-of-range of the wireless when I hit send.  (Though that has its own set of issues around why we don't determine that the network connection has failed, which I seem to think we do much faster if there isn't a network connection open!)
Send in background is being implemented on bug 921050 and is definitely landing for 2.0.  (It's in the feedback stage currently, should progress to review stage next week.)

I am duping this bug to 921050 since that use case supersedes this bug and I like duping bugs.
