I'm assuming that you mean 'conf' versus 'java' files.

I'm a bit reluctant to do this, because it isn't a configuration file. 
It's a defaults file for the JavaMail implementation. It's not supposed 
to be user editable.

It basically has the same features as the i18n resources do for Java 
classes -- it's used by the class, but not something that's supposed to 
be user editable. Would you put the i18n classes in a 'conf' directory? 
Not really.

I'd prefer it if there were a 'resources' instead, to explicitly make 
clear that they are resources, not configuration files.
