I disagree. All that does is specify which package you want to use to
compose a mail. It does not show that Emacs has been configured to talk
to a mail server. It may happen that the old default settings happened
to work on your system, but in general there is no way for Emacs to know
that they work, so now it asks, once. The relevant variable is
send-mail-function, and there is no setting for that shown above.
Just answer the question the first time, and all should be fine.
