UTL_SMTP - Multiple Recipients

Subbiah, Nagarajan



I am using the below package for the send mail functionality from Oracle.
When I use pass the multiple e-mail addresses (using comma or semicolon
delimeter), I get the following error message. Do I have to parse and split
the e-mail variable and call this package multiple times OR is there a way
to use the multiple e-mail addresses in the UTL_SMTP?

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-20000: Failed to send mail due to the following error:
ORA-29279: SMTP permanent error: 553 malformed address:
ORA-06512: at line 10

Thanks in Advance.
