Additional Period Appended in Some Use Cases By UTL_SMTP (Doc ID 1603502.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2017

Applies to:

PL/SQL - Version 11.2.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

UTL_SMTP appends an extra period erroneously after another period when sending email data. This happens when a single line spans across two write_data calls and the second write_data begins with a period.

For example, an extra period is being appended to ".Line2" and ".Line4" by UTL_SMTP program in this case.
