Can anyone tell me how to send an email from Forms 5.0 to Lotus notes. This would be helpful for me to build my application.

Thanks.

I dont really know how to send the mail thru forms specifically but from the backend I think U can do that using the SMTP enlcosed is the code below. try this .
Mey be this can soleve ur problem with Lotus notes also....

u can but u have to have an smtp client with U ...
and also the code is reproduced below but thanks to THOMAS KYTE. he is an ORACLE guru ...

create sequence mail_sira;

create public synonym mail_sira for mail.mail_sira;
grant all on mail_sira to public;

create table sendmail_body(
sira number,
satir number,

create public synonym sendmail for mail.sendmail;
grant all on sendmail to public;

--test
execute shell('plus80',true,true);
execute sendmail('Host',null,null,0,'hakany@bankapital.com.tr',null,null);
--/test

Do let me know if it works , I have not tested..
