I have a need to send 'Out of Control' Alarm notifications by e-mail to process owners within our organization.
I am using JMP 12 on a 64-bit system and unfortunately have learned that I cannot use the MAIL function in JSL as our Outlook is the 32-bit version.
Is there any way that I could configure SMTP so that I can bypass the mail client and contact the SMTP directly?
These seems to be possible on SAS as documented in:

If it is not possible to configure SMTP has anyone found an alternative work around for this problem?
There are a couple of ways to send emails besides the Mail function.
1. You can use the mailto protocol in the Web function in JSL to send an email.
Web( "mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=This%20is%20subject&body=This%20is%20body" )
2. You could also use a VBScript to send emails.
/* Save script as text file */
Save Text File("C:\sendMail.vbs",
"Your script here."
/* Run the script */
First, thank you to Justin for the response above.
I would just like to add that in JMP 13, the limitation on maintaining "bitness" between Outlook and JMP has been removed. You will be able to use the Mail JSL command with a 64-bit JMP and 32-bit Outlook.
