Thanks! I set the SMTP server in the SAS Options Menu, but knew there would be more I needed to do. Here are the current settings:
Identifies the SMTP e-mail authentication protocol
SMTP server host for email access method
EMAILID= From E-mail address, log in id, or profile for use with underlying e-mail system
EMAILPORT=25 Port number for SMTP server for email access method
EMAILPW= Used by the E-mail Access Method and Send menu item to set the email session login password for the underlying
Did not see an EMAILSYS option. I checked with IT, and the port is correct. Is there anything else I need to set?
Thanks very much,

For more information about the "rules" of using the FILENAME EMAIL engine, refer to the Help topic: Sending Electronic Mail from Within the SAS System (EMAIL) or the SAS documentation for your operating system. Note that you may need to change SAS system options related to emailing in order for these techniques to work. Also, if you go to Tech Support and search for the terms 'Email' and 'ODS', there are a lot of hits which describe various issues or troubleshooting tips:
Since you are using EGuide, you could try sending a file using the EGuide tool (right-click on an object, select send, select send as a step in the project). That will use EGuide best-practices to connect to the SMTP gateway. That will help isolate the problem.
Also, I suspect that the SMTP gateway settings in EGuide do not get passed to the SAS server for your code task. You are likely to have to set up the connectivity again within SAS 9.1.
