oracle utl_mail

Hi,
While using utl_mail  its given in docs as we need to set the smtp_out_server parameter at database level like

alter system set smtp_out_server = ‘<HOST of smtp server'>;

But when the database is a shared database we are unable to set at the database level.

Can we set this parameter at user specific and not at the database level? Or is there any other option?

Thanks.

According to the documentation here -> http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e40402/initparams244.htm#REFRN10241

That parameter is modifiable at the session level.

I would guess that you are writing some sort of PL/SQL procedure here, so if your procedure includes this line:

execute immediate 'alter session set smtp_out_server = ''‘<HOST of smtp server''';

That should take care of it.  The setting should only persist in the session that runs the procedure.
