called again to send another message?

That seems to be specific to VM, so I'll let the VM crowd handle it.

Well, it is not really a VM thing, except to say that VM is still using mail-mode for sending mail, which is semi-obsolete. mail-mode puts FCC headers in the message composition buffer and leaves them there until the message gets sent.

Perhaps moving to message-mode will cure the problem?
