How to send sms messages using my email application

Turn an e-mail into an SMS, it sounds that easy and it is that easy. You can use every e-mail program to send an SMS from your Online SMS Gateway account. We call this MailSMS.

Go to App selection, then select Mail SMS.

click + to add addresses or Domains.

Please fill in the email address or domain and add a sender ID.

The sender ID has a maximum length of 14 digits or 11 characters. Attention! Only the following characters are possible: A to Z, a to z and 0 to 9. No spaces or any other symbols and characters are possible. For more information please read the related article about "setting my own sender name / sender id".

When verified via the Add button you can use the e-mail address or Domain to send MailSMS from as described below.

Send the MailSMS from the registered address

You should send the e-mail just as any other e-mail. The mobile phone number of the recipient should be in the “To:” followed by “@mail-sms.com”.

Please make sure you use the international format for the phone number. E.g. “+447911123456@mail-sms.com”.

The text of the SMS should be entered in the body of the e-mail. If you enter more than 160 characters the MailSMS will be sent as multi part message.

This means we will cut the large message in multiple parts and the phone will fit them together again. Also make sure there are no signatures in the e-mail because these will also be copied into the SMS.

The “Subject:” should be kept empty.
