Hi All,
I want to send email using UTL_SMTP. But when I try to execute the below statements, i get some error:

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-29278: SMTP transient error: 454 5.7.3 Client does not have permission to
submit mail to this server.
ORA-06512: at "SYS.UTL_SMTP", line 17
ORA-06512: at "SYS.UTL_SMTP", line 96
ORA-06512: at "SYS.UTL_SMTP", line 221
ORA-06512: at line 19

Code executed as sysdba:
  SendorAddress  Varchar2(200)  := 'sender@myServer.com';
  ReceiverAddress varchar2(200) := 'receiver@myServer.com';
  EmailServer     varchar2(200) := 'smtp.myServer.com';
  Port number  := 25;
  crlf VARCHAR2( 2 ):= CHR( 13 ) || CHR( 10 );
  mesg VARCHAR2( 4000 );
  mesg_body varchar2(4000);


  conn:= utl_smtp.open_connection( EmailServer, Port );
  utl_smtp.helo( conn, EmailServer );
  utl_smtp.mail( conn, SendorAddress);
  utl_smtp.rcpt( conn, ReceiverAddress );
        'Date: '||TO_CHAR( SYSDATE, 'dd Mon yy hh24:mi:ss' )|| crlf ||
         'From:'||SendorAddress|| crlf ||
         'Subject: Mail Through ORACLE Database' || crlf ||
         'To: '||ReceiverAddress || crlf ||
         '' || crlf ||
         ' This is Mail from Oracle Database By Using UTL_SMTP Package';

  utl_smtp.data( conn, mesg );
  utl_smtp.quit( conn );


I am not sure what the issue is. I am trying to run in this in an AIX server. Do i need to give some permission? Please explain.

This is not an Oracle error but one from your SMTP server.
So ask your sysadmin.

Like Michel said, the Oracle part is working fine, but smtp.myServer.com doesn't want to accept your mail. So, ask a sysadmin to open it up or use another SMTP server that will accept your mail.

Best of luck!
