I don't understand vb, but today I found this script in a Windows server that send an attachment of a log.
The log is the product of our dily exports of the databae, but if you know vb, maybe this can help.

sending mail in vb wouldn't involve oracle at all.

just like sending mail from oracle doesn't involve vb.

if you don't want to do the trigger, simply pull that code out and put it in a stored procedure and then call that procedure from vb

And I want to send those files from that folder to our smtp server Through vb. i will try to use the above procdure for this purpose. but it will be more significant ia book or topic wich covers sending messages.files to smtp server through vb 6.0
