System Options That Control SMTP E-Mail
Several SAS system options control SMTP e-mail. Depending on your operating
environment and whether the SMTP e-mail interface is supported at your site, you might
need to specify these options at start-up or in your SAS configuration file.
Operating Environment Information
To determine the default e-mail interface for your operating environment and to
determine the correct syntax for setting system options, see the SAS documentation
for your operating environment.
The EMAILSYS system option specifies which e-mail system to use for sending
electronic mail from within SAS. For more information about the EMAILSYS system
option, see the SAS documentation for your operating environment.
The following system options are specified only when the SMTP e-mail interface is
supported at your site:
EMAILACKWAIT=
specifies the number of seconds that SAS will wait to receive an acknowledgment
from an SMTP server. For more information, see “EMAILACKWAIT= System
Option” in SAS System Options: Reference.
EMAILAUTHPROTOCOL=
specifies the authentication protocol for SMTP E-mail. For more information, see the
“EMAILAUTHPROTOCOL= System Option” in SAS System Options: Reference.
EMAILFROM
specifies whether the FROM e-mail option is required when sending e-mail by using
either the FILE or FILENAME statements. For more information, see the
“EMAILFROM System Option” in SAS System Options: Reference.
EMAILHOST
