Steven, but of course you can; we used to do it all the time here at SAS
Mecca until we migrated to Linux. Now, various Westatians have SAS kick
off emails on Linux. It is pretty straight-forward.
BTW, if you cannot get SAS to send emails--and that is a BIG IFF--then
you can always fall back on having SAS exploit the Unix "mailx" command.
It's nice to have a Plan B, isn't it?!?!?!?!
Steven, best of luck in making SAS do your bidding on your Unix server!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
