I think this is probably a good idea.  Most of the problems I've seen 
with users attempting to use javamail have been caused by the fact the 
javamail module has not been started.  This usually manifests as a 
provider resolution failure because the transport jars are not showing 
up in the classpath.  Because the spec jars ARE there by default, this 
error doesn't show up until it is used.
