This seems like a real odd way of handling a data transfer. Can you have
them use a different transport than email? Perhaps FTP or something similar
(i.e. WebDAV)? Is there a reason why email is being considered? The email
adds in a requirement to have something monitor the email and then save the
file whereas a data store would be able to automatically detect a file
change and initiate a process.

Is this possible?
We have a SAS BI Enterprise and a big UNIX server. Is it possible for
someone to email into the server and attach a CSV file say, and upon
receipt of the file the server goes 'Ah ha!' and kicks off a SAS job
that rips out the attached file and does something or other with it?
What needs to be done?
