    Hi and welcome to Using English.

    You seem to be using a "telegraphic"style - omitting words that aren't necessary for full understanding. If so, you can just write:
    User able to send mail. (Do you mean "email"? If so, I'd use that.)
    Use can send mail.

    If you want to write a full, proper English sentence, then either of these is fine:
    The user is able to send mail.
    The user can send mail.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
