Email To SMS: What is it?
Email to SMS (or SMTP) allows all FASTSMS users to send an SMS text message from within any email client, anywhere in the world. It is also a simple solution for developers wanting to add SMS functionality to an application that already has email sending capability.
You can send a text message to any mobile phone from within any email client, including Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, Eudora, AOL and Pegasus by following a simple format.
This means that wherever in the world you are, you can send and receive text messages provided you have access to email. You can also receive texts into your email inbox by adding a Virtual Mobile Number (VMN) allowing you to manage your texts along with your emails.
There are many instances where this method is preferred such as when you want to limit your employees’ internet access or build SMS into automated applications. For more information adding SMS functionality visit our Developer API page.
