Dear  Thomask23,

SAS can connect and send emails.  The usual means is to write to a file which has been set to point to the e-mail system that is available to your running system.  You give it
To:
From:
Sender:
Subject:
and
Attach:
lines, all by just writing out the required values using sas put statements.

It is then up to you to ensure that the one or more attachments (be it a HTML, rtf, text or pdf files) have already been generated.

You can use sas ods statement to get results in pdf format, and specify where the pdf file will be temporarly (or permanently) stored.

The following link from a SAS user group conference gives a very good example, with explaination of the steps involved.

Dear Thomask23,

How you specify the ods statements and how you code up the filename and data step will depend on how you are accessing SAS.

Do you have a stand-alone copy of sas foundation or run from a server?
Are you using enterprise guide?
Are  you using sas add-in for ms office?
Do you access SAS through a browser and SAS Studio?

If you can set up and run code similar to that in the link above, well good.  If you are restricted by your current set up then we should be able to supple pointers on how to proceed to get a successful email link working.
