One of the Gmail labs allows you to do this (assuming I understand what you mean) - it's called "Background Send".

So instead of blocking and showing the "Sending..." message, it redirects you to the main inbox and shows a "Sending in background..." message, until the message has been sent. Of course, Gmail is so fast for me that usually I'm barely back at the inbox before the message is finished! :)
