Odd Email Output

Hey everyone,

I have a quick question.  I have the following code to email me an ODS output, but for some reason it emails me two times every time it runs.  Any ideas?

Thanks!              

FILENAME mail EMAIL

   TO= '<email>'

   FROM='<me>'

         SUBJECT="Promo Report"

   ATTACH='/directory/Promo_Enroll.xls';

DATA _NULL_;

  FILE mail;

PUT 'Good Morning,';

PUT ' ';

PUT 'Attached you will find the updated Promo Enrollees and Qualifiers by market.';

PUT 'Feel free to contact me with any questions.';

PUT ' ';

  PUT "!EM_SEND!";

RUN;

Hi:

  I suspect the !EM_SEND -- the EMAIL engine is doing one send; the EM_SEND will end up doing another. When I send email, I use the technique (see page 7) shown in my SGF "Greatest Hits" paper:

  And, if you search Tech Support notes, you will find a very relevant note:
