Sending an email from an EJB is no different from anywhere else. I suggest you start by taking a look at the JavaMail API, by searching the Java website or Google.

If your EJB needs to send an email, have it delegate the task to a POJO.
Why ?? POJO's are a lot easier to test and not so heavyweight.
In fact, it's best to do as little as possible in an EJB, IMO.
