    On UNIX you can send a message (wall - write to all users). On Windows you can use netsend. These are OS functions, not database functions.

    Wall sends message to all unix users not just oracle users. I remember sending wall message 7 years ago and it went to everyone in a 43 billion dollar company.

    Write a PL/SQL procedure using dynamic sql and UTL_SMTP package to send email to every user of the database provided you know their email addresses. This link has some useful info:

    on Windows:

    Spool c:\send_msg.bat
    select 'net send '||osuser||' your message goes here....'
    from v$session;
    spool off

    double-click on c:\send_msg.bat and all oracle users will recieve
    your meesage.

    Ah, the origin of spam. I was wondering who first did that.
