If you're planning to use Geronimo's JavaMail features, you should be
on a very current version (built from source or the 1.0 release
candidate).  Then you want to add a line like this to your Geronimo
deployment plan:


That way, you should be sure to get our JavaMail code on the classpath
of your application.  The JavaMail configuration is not started by
default, though it should be started when you deploy an application
that depends on it.  If you want to start it by hand, you can always

java -jar bin/deployer.jar start geronimo/javamail/1.0/car

a standalone java application (ie when i put it in java file, compile it and run it). But
when i put this code in an war (and call it from a servlet) and then deploy the war in geronimo,
it does not work. I am pretty sure that this code is being called as any System.out.println
that i give in between the code gets displayed in the console. Also i tried out the same code
in JBoss and it seems to work there also.

But i think all that is with regards to creating a new API for geronimo in the lines of the
mail API's present in JBoss. And that since i am using plain java mail it should work irrespective
of the application server.
