Dear SAS-L-ers,

Steven Lolay posted the following in the thread that he originally kicked off:

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!
