You Asked

In the Example of Multiple Recipients in the

link, mail goes to all the recipients. But, all the names in the "To" list is available to all the recipients.Is there any parameter setting such that, only the intended recipients name appears. So that each recipient is not aware of other names in the "To" list.

and we said...

Yes. You add them add using RCPT but the message content can control whether they are CC or BCC, eg some sample code below

  l_conn := utl_smtp.open_connection(c_mail_server, 25);

  utl_smtp.helo(l_conn, c_mail_server);
  utl_smtp.mail(l_conn, c_mail_from );
  for i in 1 .. p_recip.count loop
    utl_smtp.rcpt(l_conn, p_recip(i));
  end loop;

  l_mesg := l_mesg || 'MIME-Version: 1.0' ||  crlf;
  l_mesg := l_mesg || 'To: ' || p_recip(1) || crlf;
  for i in 2 .. p_recip.count loop
    l_mesg := l_mesg || 'Cc: ' || p_recip(i) || crlf;
  end loop;
  l_mesg := l_mesg || 'From: ' || c_mail_from||crlf;
  l_mesg := l_mesg || 'Subject: ' || l_db_name || '-' || p_subject|| crlf;
  l_mesg := l_mesg || 'Reply-To: ' || c_mail_from  ||  crlf;

This does not seem to work as

this gives the first name in the list to all the recipients who gets the mail.
What we need, is the emailid of the person receiving the mail in the to clause.

The standard way to do this is to send the message to yourself and blind copy everyone that you want the message to go to.

So, if you change the 'To: to be from c_mail_from and change the "Cc:" to "Bcc:", that should probably give you what you need.

Thanks, I was looking for adding it as "To" and the address as personal to the User. Anyways thanks for the quick response.
