I think you can turn it on in 1.0 by looking in $GERONIMO_HOME/var/ 
config.config.xml for the configuration
     <configuration name="geronimo/javamail/1.0/car" load="false">
         <gbean name="SMTPTransport">
             <attribute name="host">localhost</attribute>
             <attribute name="port">25</attribute>

and changing load="true" while geronimo is stopped.

Due to GERONIMO-1455 this is a little harder to do from the admin  
console: you can "start" the configuration, but to actually get it to  
fully start you need to
shutdown and restart geronimo.

There are some bugs with our javamail implementation, but feedback  
would be welcome :-)
