When you need to get in touch with someone quickly or engage with a customer through their preferred channel, sending an email to text might be the perfect solution. In cases with no internet connection available, sending an Email via SMS may be helpful for providing important information at the right time. Even though companies seldom use SMS gateways to send text messages instead of email, it may be a useful tool in an emergency. This ensures that urgent messages get to their intended audience right away.
Integration and automation software can be used to integrate email channels and SMS sending platforms to turn an email into an SMS. Every email platform can be used to send an SMS from a newly created online SMS gateway account. This process of sending an SMS from an email channel is called “Mail2SMS.” Route Mobile provides a unified solution for this process, making integration even simpler.
How does Mail2SMS work?
Mail to SMS is sent just like any other email. After integrating a provider like Route Mobile’s automation software, the recipient’s mobile phone number needs to be added in the “To:” section followed by “@mail-sms.com”. Here the desired format is as shown in the example “+email@example.com”. The subject line, on the other hand, must be left void.
Due to the fact that an email message is delivered in a text format, the message must be within 160 characters or else it will be delivered as a multi-part message. This means the large message gets split into multiple parts via SMS over the phone. Sender names or verified domains can be changed for every email address being used in the Mail SMS application. Also, no signatures are required in the email unless they are needed to be copied into the SMS and delivered. This comprises the entire process of Email2SMS.
