Hi

Well, you're not suppose to send mail to HP-UX servers due to numerous security problems with sendmail.

Check with your security prelate first and get his OK, else, you'll be making problems for yourself.

Finally, you gave us some light and more meat to eat..hehe.lol

does your system Trusted ?

proposel, to your requirement.

write script to find user account password which are going to expire and use mailx to send information to user accounts to reset the password.

Please see below output file for script which made by our database team.

# more /passwdacct_check.job
ORACLE_HOME=/opt/app/oracle/product/10.2.0
export ORACLE_HOME
PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH
export PATH
RPTS=/ABC/oradata/dba/dbadmin/rpts/mon
export RPTS
JOBS=/ABC/oradata/dba/dbadmin/jobs
export JOBS

ORACLE_SID=ABC
export ORACLE_SID

# Extract expiry info
sqlplus / @$JOBS/ABCchkacct.sql

rowcount=`cat $RPTS/chkacct.txt |wc -l`

if [ $rowcount -gt 0 ]; then
cat $RPTS/chkacct.txt |mailx -s 'ABC - Account Check' DBATeam@abc.com.sg
fi


HTH,

Hi johnson,

Thank you for the update.

The idea here is to make users receive mail from exchange server or domino server. the mail will initiate a script to run. I need a solution to receive mail for the users from an external mail server.

Hi

You have some very junior/rookie application people and you should not be listening to them.
