    After calling this procedure service not available error is occurring…

  2. You need to set smtp_out_server parameter in oracle as described below:

    alter system set smtp_out_server = 'yourmailserver yourport' scope=both;

    — change the yourmailserver with your mail server and after a space specify port number.

    Then run below script in Sys user but before running this script modify the youruser and yourmailserver in script.

    –RUN IN SYS USER FOR ACL PRIVILEGE FOR ORACLE 11G
    —————————————————————————————–
    — "Set define off" turns off substitution variables.
    Set define off;

    — RUN IN SYS USER —

    CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE mailserver_acl(
    aacl varchar2,
    acomment varchar2,
    aprincipal varchar2,
    aisgrant boolean,
    aprivilege varchar2,
    aserver varchar2,
    aport number)
    Is
    BEGIN
    BEGIN
    Dbms_Network_Acl_Admin.DROP_ACL(aacl);
    Dbms_Output.put_Line('ACL dropped…..');
    EXCEPTION
    When Others Then
    Dbms_Output.put_Line('Error dropping ACL: '||aacl);
    Dbms_Output.put_Line(SQLERRM);
    END;
    BEGIN
    Dbms_Network_Acl_Admin.CREATE_ACL(aacl,acomment,aprincipal,aisgrant,aprivilege);
    Dbms_Output.put_Line('ACL created…..');
    EXCEPTION
    When Others Then
    Dbms_Output.put_Line('Error creating ACL: '||aacl);
    Dbms_Output.put_Line(SQLERRM);
    END;
    BEGIN
    Dbms_Network_Acl_Admin.ASSIGN_ACL(aacl,aserver,aport);
    Dbms_Output.put_Line('ACL assigned…..');
    EXCEPTION
    When Others Then
    Dbms_Output.put_Line('Error assigning ACL: '||aacl);
    Dbms_Output.put_Line(SQLERRM);
    END;
    COMMIT;
    Dbms_Output.put_Line('ACL commited…..');
    END;
    /

    BEGIN
    mailserver_acl(
    'mailserver_acl.xml',
    'ACL for used Email Server to connect',
    'YourUser',
    TRUE,
    'connect',
    'YourMailServer',
    YourPort);
    END;
    /

    — FOR ANY OTHER USER
    BEGIN
    Dbms_Network_Acl_Admin.ADD_PRIVILEGE
    ('mailserver_acl.xml','YourUser',TRUE,'connect');
    COMMIT;
    END;
    /

    this will solve your problem

    yes… problem resolved… Thank u so much…

  4. Sir I am New in oracle programming, i want to configure an email sending option in oracle 10-g forms. so any help from initial step please?

  5. Hi Muhammad,
    The above procedure is tested for Oracle 11g database, but if you want to send mail through Forms 10g, then you should use some java application and execute it through forms to send mails.

  6. can i have PL/SQL sample code for creating .csv and file and zip and attached in to email.
