The Mail List variable has 25 different email ids.

---------- Post updated at 06:54 PM ---------- Previous update was at 06:53 PM ----------

It has 25 individual email ids

Was this 25 hits from:
SELECT email_ids
or does the database field "email_ids" contain a list of 25 email addresses?

Do you intend to invoke "mailx" once for each email address , or once for all 25 addresses?

There is much variation in "mailx", the maximum size of an environment variable, and the length of a command line. What Operating System do you have? What shell are you using?

Thank you for the reply.

Yes, the field Email_id contains all the 25 email ids.
and the mailx is used for all the email_ids in the variable $MAILLIST.

echo "( ${v_log}; ${v_out} )|mailx -m -s \"Notification - $INTERFACE_NAME ($DB_INSTANCE)\" $MAILLIST"

( ${v_log}; ${v_out} )|mailx -m -s "Notification - $INTERFACE_NAME ($DB_INSTANCE)" $MAILLIST
