Yes, your application needs to have a dependency on the javamail config 
to ensure you're getting all of the correct jar files on your 
classpath.  The protocol problem you cite below is a symptom of not 
having that.  Adding the following to your deployment plan should be 

    <module name="org.apache.geronimo.configs/javamail/1.1.1/car"/>

That should be sufficient to get the classes on your classpath and allow 
you do drive everything from your code.  Additionally, you can do some 
basic session configuration in the plan (as opposed to keeping the 
configuration in your code) by using:

    <module name="org.apache.geronimo.configs/javamail/1.1.1/car">
        <gbean name="SMTPTransport">
            <attribute name="host"></attribute>
            <attribute name="port">25</attribute>

Then in your application, create the mail Session instance using

    InitialContext ic = new InitialContext(); 
    Session mailSession = (Session) 

When you request the transport instance from this session, this will 
pick up the SMTP configuration from the plan.
