Go to Preferences | Sharing | Sharing books by eMail, add your friend as an eMail recipient with their eMail address and then MOBI as the format. Ensure that the rest of the setup is correct as well (ie your eMail address etc).

Once all that is done, select one of the books you want to send to your friend, right click on it, select connect/share and then eMail to and their eMail address. Calibre will ask you whether you want to convert the book to MOBI; say yes, and then the book will be mailed to them.

No; it will only ask to convert if the book is NOT already in the correct format (ie MOBI).

You have EPUB enabled (in the device driver) as being acceptable to the N7.

Calibre only converts when an acceptable format is not found

Mobi is what is sent *IF* there was a Mobi version, then it tries to sent, in order, *any* enabled format.
ONLY if all those fail, does it convert .

Moral...
Disable all else if you *must* have Mobi

If you are not willing to help your self, don't complain when we point at the basic documentation. That is YOU being Rude to the helpers here.
