I'm trying to send the email in the SAS9.4 with outlook mail, but failed, and I got an error message below, it seems that I should specify SSL, but I don't know how. Thanks for your info

 

ERROR: Login Failed
ERROR: Email: 530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first

 

PS: This code works if I changed the sender to 163 mail, and emaihost to smtp.163.com

I suggest you also take a look at the following

Usage Note 53215: How to set up your SAS® installation to use Secure SMTP via Gmail at:

http://support.sas.com/kb/53/215.html

More information on the options= emailhost option for SAS V9.4 can be found here:

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/lesysoptsref/68023/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p1v9dr6zep9p9...

Here is some sample code:

options emailsys = smtp
emailid = 'runnerupwang@outlook.com'
emailpw = 'XXXXXX'
emailhost = 'smtp.live.com'
emailport = 25 ;

options emailhost=
(
"smtp.live.com"
STARTTLS auth=LOGIN
/* your Outlook address */
id=" runnerupwang@outlook.com
/* optional: encode PW with PROC PWENCODE */
pw="XXXXX" port=587
)
;
filename f_email email
to = '1055103120@qq.com'
from = 'runnerupwang@outlook.com'
subject = 'Automatic Email Sending Test';

data _null_;
file f_email;
put 'This is a test email with an RTF attachment via SAS programming.';
run;

Thanks for your support. The final solution for sending the email with Outlook Account is similar to your sample code. I have setup the emailhost option in the second part option, I wonder why I have to setup the first part system options. 

 

 

/*First part Option Setup*/
options emailsys = smtp emailauthprotocol= login EMAILACKWAIT=30 emailid = '******@outlook.com' emailpw = 'XXXXXX' emailhost = 'smtp-mail.outlook.com' emailport = 25 ;
/*Second part Option Setup*/ options emailhost= ( 'smtp-mail.outlook.com' port=587 STARTTLS auth=login id='******@outlook.com' /* optional: encode PW with PROC PWENCODE */ pw='XXXXXX' ) ; filename f_email email to = ('OutMail_Address1' 'OutMail_Address2') subject = 'Automatic Email Sending Test' attach = 'C:\Users\Think\Desktop\test.rtf' ; data _null_; file f_email; put 'This is a test email with an RTF attachment via SAS programming.'; run; filename f_email clear;

The difference between these two is that SMTP over SSL first establishes a secure SSL/TLS connection and conducts SMTP over that connection, and SMTP with STARTTLS starts with unencrypted SMTP and then switches to SSL/TLS. This is why the email STMP system options in the SAS code are specified first, and the email host options STARTTLS are specified second.
