Hi,
I am actually using Outlook for email interaction but I would like to be able to access my emails from oracle directly while working, without creating an email server. Anyone can help? Thank you in advance. S.

Oracle Application Server has Email Server component. The front-end is web based. The Email server is installed in Oracle database. Oracle Collaboration Suite also has Email Server as its component.

Oracle eMail Server Documentation
http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/emailserver.html


Oracle built-in package dbms_smtp can be used to programatically send/receive emails.

>> how to read emails from oracle
To read EMail sent by using standard protocols you require an EMail browser like outlook. Oracle does not store the EMails that are sent.

You can also use Oracle Built-in Packages like dbms_smtp. But you should write code using PL/SQL.
