MAPI and SMTP procedures

SQL Anywhere includes system procedures for sending electronic mail using the Microsoft Messaging API standard (MAPI) or the Internet standard Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). These system procedures are implemented as extended system procedures: each procedure calls a function in an external DLL.

These procedures are owned by the dbo user ID. Users must be granted EXECUTE permission before they can use these procedures, unless they already have DBA authority.

To use the MAPI or SMTP system procedures, a MAPI or SMTP email system must be accessible from the database server computer.

The MAPI and SMTP system procedures are:


The following procedure notifies a set of people that a backup has been completed.

CREATE PROCEDURE notify_backup( )
   CALL xp_startmail( mail_user='ServerAccount',
   CALL xp_sendmail( recipient='IS Group',
                     "message"='Backup completed'
   CALL xp_stopmail( )
