The WinSMS E-mail to SMS (SMTP) Gateway allows one to send e-mails to CellNumber@mail2sms.io which will then be sent as a SMS message to the CellNumber.
To be able to send SMS messages via e-mail (SMTP) you must first enable this feature in “My Profile” in the Client Zone.
By default the account's admin e-mail address will be added as an authorised sender, but you can add additional e-mail addresses to be used for sending e-mail to SMS.
To do this log into the Client Zone (here) and navigate to the “E-mail to SMS” tab on the “My Profile” page…
Once you have done this you will be able to send email messages to email@example.com
The cell number must be entered in international format (without a + sign) e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org
The subject can be used for any personal reference and it won't appear in the SMS that gets sent.
The gateway will send the first 160 characters of the e-mail as the SMS message, but if you have enabled long messages under My Profile in the client zone, it will send the first 918 characters of the e-mail.
If you want to schedule the message for later delivery, include the date/time in the subject line in the following format:
YYYYMMDDHHMM represents the date and time the message should be sent – for example:
In this example the message will be scheduled for 27th November 2022 at 15:00 (3PM).
- Note: The date and time you specify will be interpreted according to the Time Zone specified in your Client Zone profile.
To view or download your logs of sent messages just login to the Client Zone (here) and go to “Logs”.
