Quickly Send E-mail From Inside Oracle
September 2, 2004

This is a great article written by Boris Milrud, of Oracle Pro showing the use of the Oracl;e utl_snmp package for sending e-mail from inside Oracle:
 
 
"Sending e-mails from the database is that easy. Once you try this straightforward operation, I'm sure you'll find it useful and convenient for many of your database operations, such as debugging, remote database monitoring, and exporting database data."

"Every database developer has gone through the debugging process of putting multiple DBMS_OUTPUT calls into code. After starting a SQL*Plus session, he or she enters SET SERVEROUTPUT ON and runs the procedure. The messages that were put in the DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE calls show up onscreen--but only after the procedure has completed. This process is extremely inconvenient when debugging long batch processes, which usually are run overnight. You could wait 10 to 12 hours just to find out that your procedure went through the wrong branch of code! "

 
"I use the following APIs of the UTL_SMTP package in this Solution's code:
  • OPEN_CONNECTION() opens the connection to SMTP server.
  • HELO() performs the initial handshake with the SMTP server after connecting, and it identifies the sender for the server.
  • MAIL() initiates a mail transaction with a server but does not actually send a message.
  • RCPT() identifies the recipient of the message. In order to send a message to multiple recipients, you have to call this procedure multiple times. Each RCPT invocation schedules delivery to a single e-mail address.
  • DATA() specifies the body of the e-mail.
  • QUIT() terminates an SMTP session and disconnects from the server."
