SAS email


I am not able to send messages using SAS SMTP to addresses outside my domain. I get the following error.

WARNING: Email: 550 5.7.1 Unable to relay

Re: SAS email

I suggest that your SMTP server has relaying to "foreign" domains blocked to prevent abuse (the "open relay" problem)

Re: SAS email

As Kurt said plan SMTP is often blocked by  "open relay" (like a spammer) requirement.
Options exist for a verified SMTP way but SAS is not "up to date" wiht this. At 9.4 some things has been done: SAS(R) 9.4 Language Reference: Concepts, Second Edition (Sending E-Mail through SMTP)

Trying gmail for "open relay" approach will not be succeed. That bulkmail is only opened by mails-servers  to trusted machines.
