Returns 1, 0 or error.


Whether emails can be send.
Returns 1 if the user has set up the device for sending email.

The client may continue to set the recipients and content if the return value was 1. If 0 was the result, the client has a couple options. It may choose to simply notify the user of the inability to send mail, or it may issue a "mailto" URL via Open URL.

This function can be called before having a composer initialized.


Checks whether we can email:

Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "MailComposer.CanSendMail" ) ]
If [ $r ≠ 1 ]
    Show Custom Dialog [ "Can't send emails." ; "This iOS device is not configured to send emails." ]
    Exit Script [ Text Result: "failed" ]
End If
