For simple emails I use UTL_MAIL.  It requires a little setup but it's what I use.

There is also UTL_SMTP.  An Expert here has some good articles on using it:'s-Email-functionality-with-PL-SQL-Authentication.html

As far as the rest of the script goes, do you already have something and are just looking for the email portion?

If so, post what you have.

can I ask another question?
Can I run a query with email output from dbms_job
select user_id, account_status, lock_date from dba_users where username = 'BEV' and account_status = 'LOCKED';

>>Can I run a query with email output from dbms_job

Sure.  You just need PL/SQL to loop through the results of the select and build the message body in a CLOB or varchar2 string variable.

Then email the results.

Once you have utl_mail set up properly, here's a very quick example.

	crlf			varchar2(2):= CHR( 13 ) || CHR( 10 );
	message_v		varchar2(32000);

	for i in (select user_id, account_status, lock_date from dba_users where username = 'BEV' and account_status = 'LOCKED') loop
		message_v := message_v || i.user_id || ' is in ' || i.account_status || ' status since ' || to_char(i.lock_date,'MM/DD/YYYY') || crlf;
	end loop;
		sender => '',
		recipients => '',
		subject => 'Locked Accounts',
		message => message_v
