Send and receive SMS through email using our emailSMS service. The email-to-SMS gateway enables you to use your email client to quickly send a message to a single person or thousands of people in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and other countries. With emailSMS you can read and reply to messages received from mobile users.
What if sending an SMS was as easy as sending an email? Well, it can be with the emailSMS service of the Melrose Labs Tyr SMS Gateway using its email-to-SMS capability. Compose an email in your chosen email client, address the email to the mobile number of your intended recipient, and then click "Send". Within seconds your message will have arrived at the recipient's mobile and - as is the case with SMS text messages - read within seconds.
With emailSMS can send a message to one or many recipients in the same way as you send an SMS. Email distribution lists and contacts can be used in a similar way to how you use them for sending emails, in order to send a message to many recipients at one.
emailSMS supports Outlook, Mail, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Thunderbird and other email service and clients.
Receive SMS into inbox
Not only can SMS be sent to mobiles using email, but SMS can be received into your email inbox too using the SMS-to-email capability of the emailSMS service. The mobile user creates their message and sends it to a mobile number as they would normally do. However, instead of the message being delivered to another mobile user, it would be delivered to your email inbox. The mobile number to which they have sent their message is the SMS equivalent of your email address.
Emails do not need to come from the email client on your laptop or desktop, they can also come from an application that generates emails as a result of an event or some other trigger. Use emailSMS and its email-to-SMS gateway capability, provided through its SMTP SMS gateway, to send notifications to customers that their order is out for delivery, to notify them that their invoice is due for payment or for your latest promotion.
Quotas and CUGs
The emailSMS services enables you to control the usage of the service within your organisation. It does this through the use of quotas and closed used groups. With quotas you can set a daily amount of messages that you are willing for users in your organisation to send. A default quota can be applied across the whole organisation, with higher specific quotas being set for each user who has a greater need for the service.
Closed user groups (CUGs) can be used to restrict the mobile numbers to which messages can be sent. This allows the use to be restricted to sending messages to individual teams, a set of teams or another group of people.
Melrose Labs emailSMS is available with the Tyr SMS Gateway Enterprise account.
