As designed acp>users>send mail>status=sent even when $config['enableMail'] = false;

You get a feedback within acp that the mail was sent fine when you disabled the setting in config.php and no mail was sent.

As a suggestion: to have a quick view of config.php in acp>"start page" - that would be great ! So you can see whether you have a cache enabled, whether you have disabled mail etc.

I see the point few admins use that option and then want to send out an email, though :D

Generally speaking, this is as designed. The option is there to "swallow" email and effectively send it to a blackhole. The returning false case is supposed to indicate an error.
