Most of the time the purpose of composing an email is to send it. I think calling it an "Eject Button" is quite a stretch. Also regarding the bar of buttons. Their grouping makes sense to me. They all basically make the selected emails "dealt with." And they were given two options. Hide the ejector seat lever, or turn it into something that isn't an ejection seat lever. They made the mistake trivial to recover from. And as other people have mentioned you can turn the send button into a non-ejector seat too if you want. They certainly shouldn't make the buttons I hit 90% of the time harder to hit. When I compose an e-mail I don't want to search for the send button. When I'm looking at my inbox I'm either reading something, archiving it, or marking it as spam.
