Not. Theoretically you could use utl_tcp to write a POP3 client, but that would be the worst possible idea imaginable.

Get a command line mail client or another scripting language like PERL that can both read mail and connect to Oracle and to it that way.

Hi,

You may use blat utility for windows and mailx for unix if you have SMTP server.

But that requires a good(expensive) setup. And is applicable for production level.

thanks sam.basically i have an idea,if i have an information about incoming mails,then i want those mails to be stored in some table,or at least, the email address from which the mail is arrived.
we can communicate with the mail server, i mean oracle delivers the mail to the mail server and the m.server sends the mail to address specified right? is this procedure vice versa ? if i am wrong please let me know.
thanks & regards
sriram

Thomas already answered to your question, doesn't it?

And use code tags only when it is useful. And then always use the "Preview Message" button to verify. and make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format.
