Yes. First you must enable editing of shortcut keys. From the main menu 
go System->Preferences->Appearance->Interface and check the box beside 
"Editable menu shortcut keys". Next, open a compose window and mouse over 
File->Send and hit Delete. If you want to assign it to another shortcut, 
keep it moused over and enter your key combination.

You can also edit the file ~/.gnome2/accels/evolution to change the menu
