 Hi,

The FILENAME statement allows you to send email via SMTP.  It's pretty flexible and lets you send to multiple people with or without attachments, etc.

I guess your question could be read two ways, are you asking for help on sending emails from SAS or automating SAS jobs, or both? If you're looking for info on automation, I generally use cron on our linux server to schedule repeating jobs.
