I don't quite understand what you're trying to do. If you want to store JavaMail connection parameters in a database you have to decide which parameters those are. In all likelihood the mail host, the account (i.e. email address) and password. If you're using a non-standard port you;d need to store that too (although I'm not even sure how to tell JavaMail to use such a port). All these data items can be easily stored in a database, retrieved, and then used in a Properties for initializing the email Session.
The type of driver being used for the database is irrelevant in the overall scheme of things.
