Subject Re: tomcat7-maven-plugin and mail

The war itself deploys to a Tomcat instance on a testing machine just fine
- that Tomcat includes the javamail and activation in it's installation
hence they are declared as "provided" in our project's POM.

This boils down to not knowing if the extra dependencies within the maven
plugin are actually deployed and deployed prior to booting the war archive.
