Setting up Email to SMS

Hi, 

 

I am trying to send email to sms as discussed in the following thread. 

 

https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Discussions/can-I-send-email-to-sms-public-mobile-use...

 

I am using the following email address; [10digitnumber]@msg.telus.com

 

But for some reason no sms is delivered. Does anyone know of any other configuration that I need to do to get this working? 

 

Thank you 🙂

Re: Setting up Email to SMS

Sorry about this, but it seems to work. The problem was that, I believe the email address that I was using had spam filters on its server side and somehow does not send sms to phones; however trying with a different email address from a different domain worked. 🙂 

 

@Moderator_Team: Please feel free to delete this thread as I answered my own question.

Re: Setting up Email to SMS

@Suds, you can delete your own posts if you like.  I suggest keeping the posts and you point out something that others may benefit from.  I tried it using gmail and the text is not being received.

 

Edit:  I just tried with a different email service and it worked as well.  Interestingly, I received the gmail sent text at the same time.  Seems like the gmail message was clogged in the system and needed something else to push it through.

I just tried it with my number and it worked.

 

I sent it from my gmail account. You're not including the brackets, right?

 

Just send to 5551234567@msg.telus.com

 

edit: Glad you got it to work!
