We have recently switched to Outlook as our e-mail system. We also uses SAS to send SMTP e-mail messages.
How do I send an e-mail to 2 different people in the "to=" line?
Currently we use a macro variable to store the user address. I think Outlook uses a semi-colon as the separator to put between
the 2 addresses, but this becomes an invalid statement in SAS.
We code -
to define the variable,
and then use:
but this does not work.

I would try a space-delimited list of quoted email addresses, in parentheses i.e.
file outbox to=("firstname.lastname@example.org" "email@example.com") ;

Just a question, it doesnt look like you are dynamically making the macro variable for the address. If not why not just code directly to the to line? Also the semicolon (in the macro variable) after the macro variable is resolved is probably being read by SAS to end the coding line and thus creating syntax errors. As quentin points out, and if memory serves, spaces should work fine.
Just some thoughts.

Try This code I hope it works for you I just tested it seems ok to me.
filename myemail email to=(&to_list.)
subject="Sending mail through SAS"
attach=("path.\SAS_Code.sas" "&path.\Copy of SAS_Code.sas")
put "Hi,Please find attached the two SAS Files.Thanks,Nishunk";
