    Sending mail from Linux to users E-mails via Oracle EBS R12.1.3

    Noname123

      My system:

      Linux Redhat 5

      Oracle database 11g.

      oracle EBS R12.1.3

       

      My requirement

      Sending attachment files (pdf files) stored in my linux server along with a two paragraphs  content  to my E-mail.  One paragraph in  Arabic and another in  English.

       

       

       

      What I have did:

      In  Alert manager responsibility ---> Alert ---> Define

      Action type ---> operating system script

       

      Then I have defined the action details to perform the job.

       

       

      Here is the command:

       

       

      (echo  "

      In this paragraph I have written Arabic paragraph.

       

      In this paragraph I have written English paragraph.

      along with uuencoding the attachement files. as below

      uuencode /var/tmp/8.pdf Regulation_Rules_Sanctions.pdf; ) | mailx -s "Welcome mail" <myemail>@<domain>  -- -f erpadmin@<domain>

       

       

      What E-mail content I am getting as a result:

      1- Attachments are sent successfully.

      2- The English paragraph is sent and displayed to me clearly.

      3- The Arabic paragraph is not displayed correctly.  And it looks like the following:

       

      ÇáÓáÇã Úáíßã æÑÍãÉ Çááå æÈÑßÇÊå

       

       

       

      Then later I tried to add content-type and charset parameter as option to mailx command but it  is not working.

      And it returns invalid option

       

      Error message:

      mailx: invalid option -- a

      Usage: mail [-iInv] [-s subject] [-c cc-addr] [-b bcc-addr] to-addr ...

        [-- sendmail-options ...]

        mail [-iInNv] -f [name]

        mail [-iInNv] [-u user]

      APP-ALR-04021: Oracle Alert was unable to perform the command "(echo "¿¿¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿

       

      So, I reverted the changes.

       

       

      Any idea how to display the Arabic content properly? Thanks in advanced.
