I want to send email from EJB SessionBean. I have been googling around, but could not send email successfully.

I followed some links like this http://www.huihoo.org/jboss/online_manual/3.0/ch13s98.html

My mail-service.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- $Id: mail-service.xml 62349 2007-04-15 16:48:15Z dimitris@jboss.org $ -->

<property name="mail.debug" value="true"/>


My ejb-jar.xml:

My jboss.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

and in my SessionBean
public void sendMails(){
javax.mail.Session session = null;
try {
InitialContext initCtx = new InitialContext();
session = (javax.mail.Session)initCtx.lookup("java:/Mail");
} catch (javax.naming.NamingException e) {

try {
MimeMessage m = new MimeMessage(session);

Address[] to = new InternetAddress[] {new InternetAddress("SOME EMAIL ADDRESS")};

m.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, to);
m.setFrom(new InternetAddress("SOME EMAIL ADDRESS"));
m.setSubject("JavaMail Test");
m.setSentDate(new Date());
m.setContent("Test from inside EJB Using JBoss", "text/plain");
} catch (javax.mail.MessagingException e) {

and the error is :
javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Need to specify class name in environment or system property, or as an applet parameter, or in an application resource file: java.naming.factory.initial
at javax.naming.spi.NamingManager.getInitialContext(NamingManager.java:645)

at javax.naming.InitialContext.lookup(InitialContext.java:392)
at sessionBean.MailerBean.sendMails(MailerBean.java:42)
at sessionBean.MailerBean.main(MailerBean.java:72)

I guess it has something to do with jndi ... but I could not solve it. Please help!!

Sorry for a lengthy post. Thanks for your time!
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
