    Question UTL_MAIL package configure/install

    Environment: Oracle 10g (10.1.0.2.0) standard edition on Windows 2003 server

    I need to install utl_mail package and this is the link I am working with http://download-east.oracle.com/docs...802/u_mail.htm

    The link above asks says:

    ------------------------
    Operational Notes
    You must both install UTL_MAIL and define the SMTP_OUT_SERVER.

    To install UTL_MAIL:
    sqlplus sys/
    SQL> @$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlmail.sql
    SQL> @$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/prvtmail.sql


    You define the SMTP_OUT_SERVER parameter in the init.ora rdbms initialization file. However, if SMTP_OUT_SERVER is not defined, this invokes a default of DB_DOMAIN which is guaranteed to be defined to perform appropriately.
    --------------------------

    I successfully ran and installed utlmail.sql, but the issue is I don't see prvtmail.sql file exist but only prvtmail.plb. So how do I run SQL> @$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/prvtmail.sql
    to install SMTP_OUT_SERVER.

    Please help.

    I think you can run the file directly..

    SQL> @$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/prvtmail.plb

    Could be a document error!

    -- Call the procedure
    utl_mail.send('user@company.com','user@company.com');
    end;

    was
    ---------
    error Message: ORA-20001: Failed to send mail due to the following error: ORA-29261: bad argument
    ORA-20001: Failed to send mail due to the following error: ORA-29261: bad argument

    procedure send(precipients varchar2,
    pcc varchar2,
    pbcc varchar2,
    psubject varchar2,
    pmessage varchar2,
    pmime_type varchar2, -- Default 'text/plain;
    ppriority pls_integer, -- Default NULL
    pexc boolean);
