Email from form using developer 6i

Hi,
Could anybody help me to resolve the below mentioned problem. I wanted to call "Outlook" Mailto: from a form where my email address is entered. How can I do this in forms 6i.
PG Anil.

I'm not sure what you mean by the "SQL Net client" not being compatible.
We have one client using Oracle 11g and one on Oracle 9. I can still connect and test all of our Forms 6i client/server forms to BOTH databases and run tests successfully.
As long as the new database is not using the AL32UTF8 character set, and Forms users have all Upper-case passwords, all seems to work ok.
Edit: Following tony.g's note below: I have Patch 18 installed on Forms 6i, so it runs version 6.0.8.27.0

  • Sending email from forms using 'from'

    I'm trying to send an email from forms. It goes well, but I like to use the 'from' field from Outlook. How can I use it in OLE? I have searched everywhere, but can't find it.
    It seems to me it is something like the way you do with BCC and CC options, but I haven't found a way to do the same thing with the From field. Can anyone help?
    Thanks,
    Pauline Kooy

    Fabrizio,
    Are you just sending the Line Feed character 'CHR(10)"? I typically send the Carrage Return character 'CHR(13)' as well. I'll create a variable called CRLF and assign the Carrage Return and Line Feed characters to this variable. Then reference the CRLF variable when I want to embed a new line.
    For example:
    DECLARE
       crlf         VARCHAR2(2) := chr(13)||chr(10);
       v_msg_body   VARCHAR2(2000);
    BEGIN
       v_msg_body := 'lots of text here'||crlf;
    END;Hope this helps.

    Dear All,
    I > Iam sending Email thru ole2 from Forms6i. The whole business process is in LAN/WAN. The email process calls ms-outlook. But in some m/c although the report gets generated , nothing is sent to outbox.

  • How can i send emails from forms

    I need to be able to send emails from forms 6.(assuming the pc is running Outlook) What is the best way of doing this? Would OLE or DDE control of Outlook be the easiest method?
    If anyone has done this please let me know.

  • Send email from forms

    Can anybody send me a code how to send an email from forms
    with attachement for multiple users
    I am using oracle 8i and forms 6i
    My mail application is Novel group wise
    Thanks for your help

    Oracle Reports can be run directly to email.
    Check out the DESTYPE parameter.
    To send emails you can use a call to Java Mail using the Java importer. There is a sample form for this in the Oracle9i Forms demos. This should work in 6i also.
    You might also be able to use email from the database with the UTL_SMTP package:

    To send the mail from within a program unit/trigger, you will have to find out the mail batch command for the mail program that you are using eg. Microsoft Mail. If you are not sure, contact whoever created the mail program. Next, use TEXT_IO (built-in package) or some other method to write to the 'control' file that will be the email file you will send. Once you have done this you will need to invoke the HOST command, passing the mail batch command as a parameter to it.
    It is possible to write to an error file to see why the email was not sent, if this so happens. Again this file (any name you like to give it) will be a parameter to the mail batch command.
    To test if the mail was sent, write code like the following:
    procedure send_mail is
    l_file text_io.file_type;
    l_buffer varchar2(2000);
    l_mail_command varchar2(1000);
    begin
    /* Send mail */
    host(l_mail_command);
    /* Check if mail was sent */
    l_file := text_io.fopen('c:\temp\mailerr.err','r');
    text_io.get_line(l_file,l_buffer);
    /* If there is data in this file display message to user, using an alert for example */
    exception
    when no_data_found
    then
    text_io.fclose(l_file);
    end;
    One other point. When you are creating your 'control' file, make sure you precede the email address of the recipient with 'SMTP:'.
    I hope this helps.

  • Help: how to send emails from FORMS?

    Are there simple steps to send emails from FORMS?
    Thank you in advance.
    Jimmy

    I'm sure there are many ways to send emails from Forms. Personally I never had to do this, but I can imagine following ways.
    a) use UTL_SMTP-Package to send the email via your database
    b) use a Java-Call

  • Sending an email from forms

    hi all,
    i need your help.i.e how to send an email from forms .we actually want that facility in our project.we are trying for that but not yet geting .please help me giving information about email in forms.
    thank you in advance

    If you are using Forms on the web, one of the most easiest way to do it is to use the Java mailing support from sun. You can load it into the rdbms 8i or later and use it. There is a step by stepp detailed description on
    www.oracle.com > publications > Oracle Magazine > Ask Tom. If you just type java mail it will be between the first ten I suppose, it's a popular topic.

  • Sending external email from forms

    Hello.
    I want to send an email using a form and a report. The report is the attachment of the email. I run the report from form using this command

  • Eudora Email from Forms

    We are trying to send email from Forms (background not interactively). We use Eudora as a standard mail application. I am trying to use OLE Automation to send mails as I have to attach Word documents to the mail. There are sample code in Metalink for OLE automation of Outlook but not for Eudora. I'm not even sure if Eudora is an OLE server application. I would appreciate any kind of help and suggestions here.

  • Opening .pdf files from forms using OLE

    Hi,
    I want to open, print , save and save as pdf files from forms using OLE . Please help me with the same.
    Thanks
    Vidya

    If you are in client/server mode, you can put an OLE container component on your form. However, be warned that this method does not work when you convert to the forms server web enabled mode. If you anticipate moving your application to the web anytime soon, my advice would be to web-enable first and then add in the feature to view .pdf (or other) files. In our client/server app, I went to a lot of trouble to add in OLE features such as you describe, and now I have to completely re-write those features for the web.

  • Email a form using PHP works intermittently

    Hello all,
    I'm using DW CS6/ Win 7. I have created a simple subscription form where the user enters their email and the form is emailed to an administrator. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't and I have no idea why. Occasionally I  receive the email after a delay of several minutes and sometimes it never arrives. The webpage is here www.sanbenitoolivefestival.com/contactus2.php , below is the script , I've tried in IE and FF, same intermittent results. I'm new to FF/ Firebug but it didn't report any errors that I could see
    <div class="subscribe">
        <div class="spacer"></div>
    <?php
    if ((isset($_REQUEST['email'])) && ($_REQUEST['email'] != " Enter Email Address"))
    //if "email" is filled out, send email
        echo "sending mail";
        //send email
       $email = $_REQUEST["email"] ;
       $subject = "SBOF EMAIL SUBSCRIPTION REQUEST" ;
       $message = "Please add my email address to the SBOF email subscription list" ;
       mail("[email address removed by moderator]", $subject,
       $message, "From:" . $email);
       echo "Thank you, we have sent your subscription request";
    else
    //if "email" is not filled out, display the form
       echo '<form action="contactus2.php" method="post" >
         <em>Stay in touch by joining our email list.                  
          <input name="email" type="text" value=" Enter Email Address" size="42"  class="input" />         
         <input name="submit" type="submit" value="   SUBSCRIBE  " class="button"/>
          </em>
        </form>';
    ?>
    </div>

    You are using an extremely insecure technique that lays your form wide open to a malicious attack known as email header injection, which can turn your form into a spam relay.
    You should NEVER use unfiltered form input in the email headers. The From header is intended to indicate who sent the email. In this case, it's your website, not the person who fills out the form. If you want the convenience of hitting the reply button in your email program to use the sender's email address, you should use the Reply-to header instead of From.
    Misusing the From header like this is one possible cause of your emails not getting through. You should also check with your hosting company to see if they require the fifth argument to mail() to be set. This is normally a string that begins with -f followed immediately by a known email address on the same domain as the server, for example '[email protected]'.
    Also, using $_REQUEST is insecure.
    Change your code like this:
    <?php
    if ((isset($_POST['email'])) && ($_POST['email'] != " Enter Email Address"))
    //if "email" is filled out, send email
        // make sure the email is OK
        $email = filter_input(INPUT_POST, 'email', FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL);
        // send the message only if the email address is valid
        if ($email) {
            echo "sending mail";
            //send email
            $from = '[email protected]';  // this should be your own email address
            $subject = "SBOF EMAIL SUBSCRIPTION REQUEST" ;
            $message = "Please add my email address to the SBOF email subscription list" ;
            $headers = "From: $from\r\nReply-to: $email";
            $sent = mail("[email address removed by moderator]", $subject,
                $message, $headers);
            if ($sent) {
                echo "Thank you, we have sent your subscription request";
           } else {
                echo 'Sorry, there was a problem sending your request';
    else
    //if "email" is not filled out, display the form
       echo '<form action="contactus2.php" method="post" >
         <em>Stay in touch by joining our email list.                 
          <input name="email" type="text" value=" Enter Email Address" size="42"  class="input" />        
         <input name="submit" type="submit" value="   SUBSCRIBE  " class="button"/>
          </em>
        </form>';

  • LOVSon System Parameters & Email from Forms?

    I have 2 questions:
    1) Can email be sent from forms as well as reports or just reports?
    2) Can a LOV be set up from the System parameters as well as user parameters?
    If the answer to either of these questions is yes could someone tell me where to look?
    Thank you for your help!

    Hey buddy,
    I was working on a similar issue today.
    1. Set the SMT_OUT_SERVER in init.ora and shutdown the server and started
    using this init.ora
    2. Checked by logging as sys whether utl_mail package is valid
    3 From the sys account I tried sending the email
         BEGIN
         utl_mail.send('[email protected]', '[email protected]', NULL,      NULL, NULL);
         END ;
    4 If step 3 works ur set up is good and then you need to have the privilege for
    the user account where you are running this or grant it to public
    grant execure on utl_mail to public
