Problem sending Email from Oracle(UTL_SMTP)

hi,
I am trying to send a mail from Oracle (UTL_SMTP).
Mail is getting sent, but Body of the email is ABSENT (Subject is present).
Code is as follows
BEGIN
      --Creating a connection with SMTP Server
      g_mail_conn := UTL_SMTP.open_connection (g_s_mailhost, 25);
      --Handshaking
      UTL_SMTP.helo (g_mail_conn, g_s_mailhost);
      --Setting the FROM ID
      UTL_SMTP.mail (g_mail_conn, p_i_msg_from);
      --Setting the TO ID
      UTL_SMTP.rcpt (g_mail_conn, p_i_msg_to);
      --Preparing the mail
      l_mesg :=
            'Date: '
         || TO_CHAR (SYSDATE, 'dd Mon yy hh24:mi:ss')
         || 'From: '
         || p_i_msg_from
         || UTL_TCP.crlf
         || 'To: '
         || p_i_msg_to
         || UTL_TCP.crlf
         || 'Subject: '
         || p_i_msg_subject
         || UTL_TCP.crlf
         || p_i_msg_text;
      --Setting the format of the mail as HTML
      UTL_SMTP.DATA (g_mail_conn,
                       'MIME-Version: 1.0'
                     || CHR (13)
                     || CHR (10)
                     || 'Content-type: text/html'
                     || CHR (13)
                     || CHR (10)
                     || l_mesg || CHR (13)
                    );
      --Closing the connection
      UTL_SMTP.quit (g_mail_conn);


There are some other procs also for sending mail.
They used to work fine earlier.
But now SMTP server is reconfigured for the machine.

Please help.
Thanks

rather than trying to put all of the header and body together using the DATA routine,  try splitting it into pieces.   not only will this reduce the likelihood of varchar2 overflow from concatenation, but it will also allow you to pinpoint where in the procedure the errors are occuring.


try this...
BEGIN
    --Creating a connection with SMTP Server
    g_mail_conn   := UTL_SMTP.open_connection(g_s_mailhost, 25);
    --Handshaking
    UTL_SMTP.helo(g_mail_conn, g_s_mailhost);
    --Setting the FROM ID
    UTL_SMTP.mail(g_mail_conn, p_i_msg_from);
    --Setting the TO ID
    UTL_SMTP.rcpt(g_mail_conn, p_i_msg_to);
    --Preparing the mail
 
    UTL_SMTP.open_data(g_mail_conn);
    UTL_SMTP.write_data(g_mail_conn,
                        'Date: ' || TO_CHAR(SYSDATE, 'dd Mon yy hh24:mi:ss') || UTL_TCP.crlf);
    UTL_SMTP.write_data(g_mail_conn, 'From: ' || p_i_msg_from || UTL_TCP.crlf);
    UTL_SMTP.write_data(g_mail_conn, 'To: ' || p_i_msg_to || UTL_TCP.crlf);
    UTL_SMTP.write_data(g_mail_conn, 'Subject: ' || p_i_msg_subject || UTL_TCP.crlf);
    UTL_SMTP.write_data(g_mail_conn, 'MIME-Version: 1.0' || UTL_TCP.crlf);
 
    UTL_SMTP.write_data(g_mail_conn, 'Content-type: text/html' || UTL_TCP.crlf);
 
    UTL_SMTP.write_data(v_connection, UTL_TCP.crlf);
 
    UTL_SMTP.write_data(g_mail_conn, p_i_msg_text);
 
    UTL_SMTP.write_data(v_connection, UTL_TCP.crlf);
 
    --Closing the connection
    UTL_SMTP.close_data(v_connection, UTL_TCP.crlf);
    UTL_SMTP.quit(g_mail_conn);

why only a B?  if it worked and was complete, it should have been an A.  

If you needed more, you only needed to ask.  Please don't assign penalties without giving the volunteers (not just me) a chance to complete your answer.
