Most of you responded that JavaMail and JAF are a part of J2EE, while 
Tomcat provides only a subset of J2EE. I agree with that.

The reason for my post was the fact that:

1. TC 4.1 has JavaMail support, just as TC 5.0 (at least in JPackage 
2. TC docs for all versions list a JavaMail over JNDI example

Rolling JavaMail support into TC 5.5.7 wasa breeze, but you should warn 
people of this. Or I wasn't paying enough attention to docs (which could 
also be the case).
