Sending blob attachments in e-mail with utl_smtp

[From Builder AU]

Last time, I showed how to send an HTML-formatted e-mail from an Oracle PL/SQL application using utl_smtp. I promised I would extend the package a little with a second method that allows you to send Binary Large OBject (blob) attachments in the e-mails. The most common application where I work is sending PDFs that are stored in the database to various recipients.
