Receiving an SMS to Email Message

With our SMS to Email platform, you can seamlessly send and receive SMS messages through email. You can send and receive messages from a single email address or to and from a distribution email. Note: Receiving Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) messages is currently supported but Sending not supported by this platform.

Here's how it works: when an SMS arrives at your Telephone Number, it's transformed into an email and delivered straight to your mailbox.

Replying to an SMS to Email Message

Let's say you receive an SMS to Email message to your phone number 17405551234 from an example cell phone number 16145551234. To reply, simply compose your message and add ### at the end, just like this:

"Hi! I received your message. This is a test response. ###"

By adding ###, you're letting our Email to SMS processor know that your response is complete. This helps us ensure that only your intended message reaches its destination as an SMS, without any extra bits like email signatures.

Composing a new Email to SMS Message

To start a new SMS from your email, follow these simple steps:

Create an email address using this format:

  • Swap out 'TheNumberToSendTo' with the recipient's phone number. Using the previous example, this would be 16145551234.

  • Replace 'MyNumber' with your Telephone Number (TN). For instance, using the previous example, it would be 17405551234.

For instance, if you're sending an SMS from 17405551234 to 16145551234, your To email address would look something like:

Once you've set up the email address, simply compose your message, wrap it up with ###, and hit send. Your email will work its magic and be transformed into an SMS message to the intended recipient.
