The UTL_SMTP package is designed for sending electronic mail (E-Mail) over simple mail transfer protocol (SMTP) as specified by RFC821. Some mail servers require username and password to be supplied for authentication. If the username and password is not supplied when the SMTP server expects it, then call to the UTL_SMTP will fail with "ORA-29279: SMTP permanent error: 530 Authentication required".
The sample code below shows how to include the username/password for the mail server.
