Email to SMS

With, 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 you must make sure you have the following:

  1. Registered account.
  2. Credits in your account (every Trial account with verified mobile number receives 25 free Credits).
  3. You must have added the email addresses that will be using to your account in Send SMS>Email to SMS>Settings.
From: YourRegisteredEmail@yourdomaincom This is who is sending the email and this must be added in your Voodoo SMS Account.
To:, This is who the message should be sent to. You can send to multiple numbers by separating with a comma, and even send the same message to email addresses at the same time!
Subject: XYZ Ltd This is the Sender ID who the message appears from. A Sender ID must be greater than 2 characters. You can use up to 11 alphanumeric characters. Please note that some networks accept spaces whilst others do not and will remove them. Using the number ‘3’ in a Sender ID requires registration - please contact your Account Manager to discuss this.
Body: New Order Received This text message goes here; it is limited to 160 characters. We’ll then forward it to the mobile you entered!

Advanced Features

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

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.

Truncate Sender ID

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

Replace Sender ID

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.

Alternative Failure Email

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

End of SMS Marker

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).

Truncate Body

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.
