What is Email to SMS?

Last Updated: Oct 30, 2014 04:19PM AEDT
When SMSGlobal receives an email to a special address, it will be converted to an SMS message and sent through your account. As a result, any program that can send an email can be used to send an SMS message as well!


Email to SMS is capable of sending both one-way and two-way messages. For example, you might like to receive one-way Email to SMS alerts to a mobile handset, or add your phone to an email notification list. If you would like to be able to receive replies, incoming messages can also be sent back to your original email address, allowing you to have a conversation with a mobile phone just as you would over email.

To send an Email to SMS, approve one or more email addresses that are permitted to send Email to SMS through your account by entering each email on a separate line under the Allowed sender addresses / domains section.

We will use this email address to recognise messages are coming from you and know to send those messages from your account. Then, you can send an email to the destination phone number For example, to send a message to 61447100250, send your email to Type your message in the body of this message and send away! 

To begin using Email to SMS, there are a couple of settings to enable on your account. For help, please check the article on setting up and using Email to SMS.
