If it was an inbuilt limitation of Tomcat, I wouldn't expect to see a
ClassDefNotFoundException....are you sure you've put your xerces parser .jar
file in the WEB-INF/lib directory of your webapp?
Also Mail Archive does have a search facility for this list. Its pretty crap
but its better than nothing :-)
