Subject: Problem sending e-mail from SAS -- Windows 2000
I have a job that runs a few minutes before midnight once a week.
Among other things, it sends e-mail from a data step, using the
FILENAME EMAIL option, to the the recipient of a report. A couple
weeks ago our IT department applied Outlook Service Release 1 for
Windows 2000. It includes some security patches. Since this SR was
installed, when the program tries to send e-mail, a popup window
displays the following message: "A program is trying to automatically
send e-mail on your behalf. Do you want to allow this? If this is
unexpected, it may be a virus and you should choose 'No'." Then the
program stops and waits for a response, which doesn't happen until I
arrive the next morning. Does anyone know how to circumvent this and
have the program send the message without asking for user input? Sp
far, IT hasn't provided any ideas.
Thanks for any help,
