If you put all extensions to the standard libraries in the right place, that is, place the jar files in $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/ext you shouldn't have a problem. And you shouldn't need to set the classpath.
Well I'm not a UNIX guy, but from my Windows experience I can say that you try to modify the 5th line of your question like:

--used export classpath=.:<path of mail.jar file>:<path of activatio.jar file>:<path of javac>

pls note the [.:] just after the classpath word.

May be 'this' will tell (in UNIX) the java compiler to include the current directory also. As you've set the classpath to various files, and the java compiler is nothing but computer program :), it wont include the current directory by itself, and thats why . should be included.

Alternatively, you should put all the extra packages in a single directory and include 'this' directory in the classpath as recommended by CEHJ.

Hope it'll solve your problem.

It seem you miss some fundamental jar try looking for jar like: rt.jar or runtime.jar and put it in the classpath.
