JavaMail in SDK 1.6

JavaMail in SDK 1.6

JavaMail in SDK 1.6

I'm having a problem setting up JavaMail in the SDK 1.6 environment.  I'm really just hosting Tomcat, Netbeans, etc on my own computer.

If I have SDK 1.6 do I still need to install the Java Activation library?  The directions on the Sun web site confused me a bit.

I downloaded the Javamail zip file and then set the CLASSPATH but it's still not recognizing it in the IDE.  Do I need to place the mail.jar file anywhere in any of the TOMCAT lib directories?

RE: JavaMail in SDK 1.6

I figured out.  I had to write an SMTPAuthentication class in order to successfully send the email.
