Here is a topic for your reference:

If you could elaborate the exact steps when you deployed the connector on Geronimo, it would do more help.

I am trying to deploy the sample JEE connector mailconnector.rar. However I
am getting an error message telling me that "A connector module must be
deployed using a Geronimo deployment plan".

I went to Geronimo documentation (for version 2.1) and there I found that
the "The geronimo-ra.xml deployment plan is an optional file". If so, why am
I getting the above error for not having the geronimo-ra.xml file when such
a file is optional?

I also tried to install the same connector on GlassFish and the connector
was deployed successfully. The reason why I am mentioning this is NOT to
compare the two, but rather as assurance that the connector is packaged
