Well at least we should update the links :-)

Given javax.activation has been part of the core lib for a few releases
(IIRC it was added in Java6 and now gets removed again) people will not
have installed it and now are caught by surprise. Therefore I suggest to
create a FAQ entry for it and add an additional hint to the mail task

The blurb about activation.jar being an external library has become true
again. It is false when using Java6 to 9.
