With EmailtoSMS.net, sending a text message from an email address is simple. We simply convert your email into a text message and deliver it. It’s that easy!
Before you can use EmailtoSMS.net you must make sure you have the following:
You can enable the advanced features on your account in Send SMS>Email to SMS and clicking on Manage this email icon next to your address. A pop-up box will open with the following Advanced Features:
Quiet times feature allows you to specify if you’d like to only send your messages during a specific time period. This is available on our Send SMS feature as well. Quiet times can be configured in Settings>Quiet Times.
A sender ID can only be 11 alphanumerical characters. Truncating the sender ID will allow you to add more than 11 characters to the subject field, but will shorten it back to 11 characters, so the message will still go through and not error.
For example, a Sender ID of MyAwesomeCompanyLtd would come through as MyAwesomeCo
Replacing the Sender ID sets a default Sender ID for all messages sent. This will replace anything you add yourself to the Subject Sender ID field. This cannot be used if Truncate Sender ID is enabled.
By default, all message failures will be emailed to your registered account. Here you can add an alternative email address to get them sent to. This would be useful if your registered email is not monitored or your Tech team need to know about failures
Here you can specify where you’d like your email message to be cut off. You can assign a marker to your email body and all text after this marker will not be added to your message.
By default, the marker is ## but this can be changed to anything you want to a maximum of 10 characters.
A great example of using this would be to remove email footers. Place the marker before your email footer, and you don’t risk sending out longer SMS than you want to (saving credits).
Truncating the body of the message means that you can allow it so only a message of 160 characters (1 credit) can be used. You may also allow it, so you can only send messages that are 160 characters or fewer - otherwise, the message will be rejected.
