R12 Email Center vs 11i

Hi Everyone,

Here is piece of information which is different in R12 and 11i.
Oracle Email center(eMC) product in 11.5.10 or prior releases need Oracle Email Server(OES) 5.2 version for email message processing. Oracle Email Server is obsoleted product which is of 8.1.7 binaries. In other words if you have 10g DB with 11.5.10 apps tier, you need to have separate 9i DB to support OES database.

In R12 you can have email center without having to have Oracle Email Server. Only requirement is you need to have IMAP 4 complaint mail servers.

You can refer metalink notes for migrating 11i data to R12 data using the note: 549036.1
Obsoleted OES note: 470686.1

Hope this helps. As usual leave your comments. :)

Hi Suresh,

I am working on the Email Center R12 module. The client wants to convert all 11i email center emails and related info into R12 application.

Do we have any seeded API 's to convert from 11i to R12.
