problem with sending email/jsp

I am trying to send email in my application. For that I need mail.jar and activation.jar. I downloaded both of the jar files and I put them
in my jre/lib.ext library.. But whenever I try to compile my application it says :

package javax.mail does not exist for this line and all the following lines.

I tried to put the same jar files in the directory of jboss-4.2.3.GA\server\default\lib , but still does not work.. Do I need to plug-In anything in Netbeans or do I need to do any extra thing? I searched on the internet and tried everything but did not work..

Any advice please?

Many thanks..

I have just solved this problem. I needed to add the jar files within NetBeans. Right click on the Project, Properties, Library, add jar file.
This solved my problem.
I agree. Here's the link:
