RE: Email Notification

Have a look at Metalink note 74269.1 "How to Test an SMTP Mail Gateway From a Command Line Interface" This should help determine if the mail connection works outside of OEM - though this is pretty much covered by the email client working - unless it is doing something fancy.

Then to obtain further debugging information, turn on OMS Tracing as outlined in [NOTE:69522.1] How to Activate Logging and Tracing for EM 2 Components

Is the server Exchange?
If so, there are a few bugs and patches that you might want to investigate - they also contain examples of what the traces might show you See bugs 1180760, 1823589, 1935218 & 2268674

I've forgot to say that it is fully qualified production server with pop3, smtp, imap protocol support. But there are no events in smtp server logs from Oracle connection. Oracle cannot connect to it when the network is okay.
