Taglibs are tied to the underlying JSP specification and hence,
specific versions of servlet containers (such as Tomcat).

Mailer 1.1 will work on Tomcat 4.1's Jasper2 (JSP 1.2), but not on
Tomcat 5.x (JSP 2.0). You might want to check out the sandbox taglib
Mailer2 [1], which is a JSP 2.0 taglib. It will work on Tomcat 5.x
though this will require changes to your JSPs, and assumes you're able
to use unreleased sandbox code.
