do you want to send mail from oracle database or from reports 6i ?

if you want to send from oracle database, then you should have a table
where to email address is stored and text you want to send can also be in
CLOB field and also the subject we can have. something like the below :

mail_payslip table
-------------------
to_address varchar2(100),
subject  varchar2(1000),
mail_text clob
process_flag varchar2(1) -- this we can have it Y or N

We can write a pl/sql block, to pick all records ( with process_flag as 'Y') from the above table and send
the text which we have stored in mail_text to the email address which we have given in to_address field along
with the subject.

Thanks

Reports server 9i/10g is able to send mails.
You have to think about migration to
newer version of reports.

But if you won't to migrate
you have to write stored procedure and to invoke it
from Reports:

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE SP_SENDMAIL
(
mail_server in varchar2,
sender in varchar2,
recipient in varchar2,
subject in varchar2,
message in varchar2)
is
c utl_smtp.connection;
mesg varchar2 (4000);
crlf varchar2(2) := chr(13) || chr(10);
mlength number(4);
mdone number(4) := 0;
mpos number(3) :=1;
linewidth number(2) := 60;

begin

mlength:=length(message);

c := utl_smtp.open_connection(mail_server, 25);

utl_smtp.helo(c, mail_server);

utl_smtp.mail(c, sender);

utl_smtp.rcpt(c,recipient);

mesg := 'Date: ' || to_char(sysdate, 'dd Mon yy hh24:mi:ss');
mesg := mesg || crlf;
mesg := mesg || 'From: ' || sender || '<' ||
sender || '>';
mesg := mesg || crlf;
mesg := mesg || 'To: ' || recipient || '<' ||
recipient || '>';
mesg := mesg || crlf;
mesg := mesg || 'Subject: ' || subject;
mesg := mesg || crlf;
mesg := mesg || '' || crlf;

while mdone < mlength and mpos < mlength
loop

if (mlength - mdone) < linewidth then
mesg := mesg || substr(message, mpos, mlength - mdone) || crlf;

mdone := mdone + (mlength - mdone);
mpos := mlength;
else
mesg := mesg || substr(message, mpos, 60) || crlf;
mpos := mpos + 60;
end if;

end loop;


utl_smtp.data(c, mesg);
utl_smtp.quit(c);

exception
when utl_smtp.transient_error or
utl_smtp.permanent_error then
utl_smtp.quit(c);

raise_application_error(-20000, 'Failed to send mail due to following
' || sqlerrm);
end sp_sendmail;

First at all you have to find a working or install an SMTP mail.server.
After that you have to install Oracle Forms/Reports server standalone
or find working Oracle Application Server 9i/10g with Oracle Forms/Reports server
installation on it.

Now you can either Reports Developer distribution list and to add mailing of reports
after creating or use a batch job that using binaries in the Reports server installation
maiils the report.

It is explained on the documentation of Oracle Forms/Reports server on the OTN.
Build Reports on the WEB sofar as I recall.
