I want to send mail from oracle reports builder, for the test purposes I want to do it on my workstation which is on windows 2000 before moving it to the application server...this is what I did.....
I added the mailserver part in the rwbuilder.conf file.This is how it looks
In the reports builder,I highlight the reports and from File -> Mail option
I enter the from and to address and I get the following error.
REP-0069: Internal error
REP-57054: In-process job terminated:Terminated with error
REp-50152:Error while sending mail-Sending Failed;
javax.mail.MessagingException:Could not connect to SMTP host:xxxx.xx.xxxx.xx.xx,port :25; (This outgoing mailserver is exactly what I mentioned in the rwbuiler.conf file)
nested exception is:
java.net.SocketException:Software caused connection abort:connect
Is the workstation required to have SMTP server running on it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
I don't know Reports Builder I'm afraid, but it looks as though the workstation needs to be able to connect to a remote SMTP server. You can test your connection from the command line using telnet. For example, try these troubleshooting instructions: support.microsoft.com/kb/q153119
