Post DB Mail ? Reply with quote

how does this work. I have downloaded the trial version. Installed it. created the send_mail function in the system user and created a public profile. Also tested as per the select statement what is given alongwith the software, and it returned '0' zero.

I had tried :

SELECT send_mail('nthakkar@saberconsulting.com',
'Test message',
'DB Mail has been successfully installed',
'nthakkar@saberconsulting.com' )
FROM dual

and it returned zero. Now I was expecting that it would send a mail to "nthakkar@saberconsulting.com" as it had asked in the DB Mail configuration for the SMTP server and it had been configured as well.

BUT it didnt send the mail to my email addr!!!!

Could anybody clarify its working methodology. Like would it send a mail from the Database to my email account or IT WOULD JUST CREATE A PIPE IN THE DATABASE WHICH CAN BE READ ONLY USING THE DBMS_PIPE PACKAGE??!

Thanks

Make sure you have the DB Mail console running and you have configured the database connection and the appropriate email interface.
