This video shows how to configure and send email from and Oracle database using both UTL_SMTP and UTL_MAIL, as well as comparing UTL_SMTP to a manual SMTP conversation with a mail server.

For the UTL_MAIL section, make it OS generic (even the docs don't).

Instead of this for Windows:
@%ORACLE_HOME%/rdbms/admin/utlmail.sql
@%ORACLE_HOME%/rdbms/admin/prvtmail.plb

For UNIX flavors:
@$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlmail.sql
@$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/prvtmail.plb

Use the LONG forgotten sqlplus shortcut for ORACLE_HOME:
@?/rdbms/admin/utlmail.sql
@?/rdbms/admin/prvtmail.plb

Works across platforms and if used in scripts, no modifications necessary.

Hi,
Sir, can we use smtp.gmail.com as a email server.

I see no reason why you can't - as long as you have an existing set up where you can use it, any valid email relay you have permissions to use should work
