No.

You need to ask your system admin staf or network staff for an email server or mail relay.

So?

Smtp email relays eventually need an email server.

If you don't know what it is, you need to ask.

With your other questions can I assume you are thinking about emailing from an Oracle database server?

You need to know the email server you have access to.

if your database has been configured for utl_mail, you can try looking in v$parameter for the  "smtp_out_server"  value

no guarantee it will be populated though, but if it is,  it "should" be a valid server

You can get the server from a command prompt:

1. type nslookup [enter]
2. type your domain e.g. google.com [enter]
3. type set query=mx [enter]
4. type nslookup [enter]

you'll see your smtp-server :-)

Here is the output.
Can you help what is the smtp server...
C:\Documents and Settings\Mathew>nslookup
Default Server:  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.net
Address:  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

> mx
Server:   xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.net
Address:   xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

***  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.net can't find mx: Non-existent domain
> nslookup
Server:   xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.net
Address:   xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

*** xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.net can't find nslookup: Non-existent domain

you should have something like this:

C:\Documents and Settings\Mathew>nslookup
Default Server:   xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.net
Address:  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
> your mailserver (e.g. if you use xxx@gmail.com the server is "gmail.com")
>set query=mx
>nslookup

the third line after that should be your smtp

>>>set query=mx
>>>nslookup

Don't you mean (using your domain of gmail.com):
set query=mx
gmail.com

The only reason I posted is, it didn't when I tried it on our system.
