simple:
I would use UTL_MAIL:

If the message is larger than 32K, you'll need to use UTL_SMTP.

I am planning to store the output of a query into a text file, and then send using bmail, I will use task scheduler to initiate the batch file where all the commands would be written, so can you tell me how to store output of a query into a text file?

Not sure why you want to involve the operating system and extra files when you don't need to but OK:

In sqlplus use the SPOOL command.  There are a lot of sqlplus options you can set and you can actually create very nice reports.


The basic commands go like:
spool myFile.txt
select ... from table;
spool off

If you want more detailed advice on how to use sqlplus and create a specific format, ask.
