There are two ways that you can do this:

1.) You can put String values into JNDI with the <Environment/> tag.

https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/config/globalresources.html#Environment_Entries

You would then need to use Spring to pull each String value from JNDI.
This would be a bit tedious if you need to specify more than one or two
values.

2.) Alternatively, you could configure a complete Java Mail Session with
Tomcat.

https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/jndi-resources-howto.html#JavaMail_Sessions

Then load the Session from JNDI with Spring and pass the session to your
org.springframework.mail.javamail.JavaMailSenderImpl bean, rather than
specifying individual properties.

>From the JavaMailSenderImpl Java Docs:

"Allows for defining all settings locally as bean properties.
Alternatively, a pre-configured JavaMail Session can be specified,
possibly pulled from an application server's JNDI environment."

http://static.springsource.org/spring/docs/3.1.x/javadoc-api/org/springframework/mail/javamail/JavaMailSenderImpl.html
