The SMTP E-Mail Interface

Statements That Control SMTP E-mail


In the FILENAME statement, the EMAIL (SMTP) access method enables you to send e-mail programmatically from SAS using the SMTP e-mail interface. For more information, see the FILENAME Statement, EMAIL (SMTP) Access Method in SAS Language Reference: Dictionary.

FILE and PUT Statements

You can specify e-mail options in the FILE statement. E-mail options that you specify in the FILE statement override any corresponding e-mail options that you specified in the FILENAME statement.

In the DATA step, after using the FILE statement to define your e-mail fileref as the output destination, use PUT statements to define the body of the message. The PUT statement directives override any other e-mail options in the FILE and FILENAME statements.
