What? Hold on there. On fd.o desktop systems, one uses "xdg-email" to use the user's preferred email composer to pop up a mail ready for sending.

Some trouble(tm) arises if an advanced the user has actually gone and configured emacsclient as their preferred email composer.

Defaulting to `smtpmail-send-it' will make Emacs behave exactly like all
other mail clients: It'll ask you for the outgoing server name.

Pretty annoying as I'd have already configured that in my usual mail client that apps should be using, grr.
