If that's what you need, your best bet may be to use a data step to write
your own email messages. You'll have to mimic the RFC822 protocol
yourself. Just build a null data step which opens a pipe to your SMTP
server via a filename statement, and then sends the header and mail
information via put statements. It's not the cleanest solution, but it's not
That said, we never were able to get Lotus Notes to recognize all the
header information we wanted to impart, despite the immense efforts
that my co-worker [or cow-orker :-] Rich Leduc put into it. And the calls
he put to SAS tech support. He finally settled on a Perl solution using the
Net::SMTP module [IIRC] and had it working in a day. Or less. C'est la vie.
