The uber jar is required in order for the Geronimo mail component to 
work correctly, since it configures the various transport 
implementations.  If that is removed, it might be possible to revert to 
just the spec jar, but I think I'd recommend against it because it makes 
it more difficult to incrementally add the full javamail support back in.
