Note that UTL_SMTP works fine from the same server.

Any ideas?

The RAISE keyword should not be there.

To elaborate on Andrew's comment...the raise statement "RAISE;" is inappropriate for an anonymous PL/SQL block.  It's intended use is to propagate an error back to the calling procedure (which does not exist in an anonymous block).

Hi,

first of all I want to say that's really strange guys to say that RAISE is the problem here!!! hey, come-on, you must be kidding!

I'm just looking to the error and it's 20002 which means that is a user-defined exception inside utl_tcp package. So I think that probably the utl_tcp is not proper installed. Did you installed directly from the kit or take it from another server type!!! It's about CRLF I think!

Anybody has another suggestion,

It was installed during the install of Oracle 8.1.7 on HP/UX 11.

I think I agree that it is probably an installation problem as it worked from a Win2000 install of 8.1.7. I wonder if there is an easy way to reinstall it.

Try running the initplsj.sql as SYS to make necessary Java components accessible via PL/SQL

I ran your code exactly as you posted it, just changed the server name to my SMTP server and it worked just fine!!

Maybe you want to run these once again, just to make sure that all the java classes are loaded properly.


$ORACLE_HOME/javavm/install/initjvm.sql => skip if you've done this
$ORACLE_HOME/javavm/install/init_security.sql
$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/initplsj.sql

The reinstallation of the jvm did it I think. I tried just the initplsj.sql before and that didn't help.

Thanks very much all of you for your help. :)
