    Hi,
    In order to send email from Oracle package UTL_SMTP must exist in the database.This package is created by running utlsmtp.sql and is available from Oracle version 8.1.6 and above.
    The following procedure allows to send the email through Oracle

    CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE send_email
    ( sender IN VARCHAR2,
    recipient IN VARCHAR2,
    subject IN VARCHAR2,
    message IN VARCHAR2)
    AS
    mailhost VARCHAR2(100) := 'mailhost.fictional-domain.com';
    mail_conn utl_smtp.connection;
    BEGIN
    mail_conn :=utl_smtp.open_connection(mailhost);
    utl_smtp.helo(mail_conn,mailhost);
    utl_smtp.mail(mail_conn,sender); -- sender
    utl_smtp.rcpt(mail_conn,recipient); -- recipient
    utl_smtp.open_data(mail_conn);
    send_header(mail_conn,'From', '"Sender" <'||sender||'>');
    send_header(mail_conn,'To', '"Recipient" <'||recipient||'>');
    send_header(mail_conn,'Subject', subject);
    utl_smtp.write_data(mail_conn, utl_tcp.CRLF||message);
    utl_smtp.close_data(mail_conn);
    utl_smtp.quit(mail_conn);
    EXCEPTION
    WHEN utl_smtp.transient_error OR utl_smtp.permanent_error THEN
    utl_smtp.quit(mail_conn);
    raise_application_error(-20000,
    'Failed tosend mail due to the following error: ' || sqlerrm);
    WHEN OTHERS THEN
    raise_application_error(-20001,
    'The following error has occured: ' || sqlerrm);
    END;
    /


    sql>EXECUTE send_email('me@fictional-domain.com','you@fictional-domain.com','This is a UTL_SMTP-generated email','Hi There !');

    All that will work if JVM is also installed.

    Cool

    Harry,

    Complete scripts and PL/SQL procedures could be found
    Here

    Examples include UTL_SMTP on 8i and 9i.

    Hope that helps,

    Harry, if select count(*) from dba_source where name = 'UTL_SMTP'; returns something like 409, then you have it, if it returns 0, obviously not.

    If you don't currently have the JServer loaded run the following as SYS:

    SQL> @$ORACLE_HOME/javavm/install/initjvm.sql
    SQL> @$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/initplsj.sql

    Hi All,

    Rohit, I tried running the procedure and got some error. Where could I find the Send_header program unit?

    Thanks,
    Skid
