I think there should be a distinction between to write and to send.

There usually is, but for sending letters and emails they are used roughly interchangeably (in Dutch at least, I'm not too sure about English), the one difference I think is that with gestuurd it's not always the same person who wrote the thing, which is the case with geschreven.
