The SAMAIL tag allows a developer to easily send email messages.  The SAMAIL tag has the following attributes;

   TO   - to address
   FROM - from address
   CC   - carbon copy address
   BCC  - Blind carbon copy address (not displayed in address line)
   SUBJECT - mesage subjec
   HTML - "yes" to send as HTML or "no"
   SERVER - SMTP server to use
   PORT   - SMTP port to use
   TIMEOUT - number of seconds to time out
   ATTACHMENT - list of attachment files delimited by ';' (semi-colon)
   NAME = variable to store result of operation

        SUBJECT="Testing mail!!" NAME=mail>

The named variable (NAME=mail) creates a variable called 'mail', that will contain the result of the SAMAIL operation.  If this parameter is not supplied, the mail message is sent without SteelArrow waiting around for a response.  Using the NAME= attribute forces SteelArrow to wait for the response from the SMTP mail server, and is usually used for debugging purposes.

To output the result of the SAMAIL operation, you can wrap the variable within an SAOUTPUT...
