    SMS text messages (Outlook XP)

    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to send SMS text messages to mobile phones, using Outlook?

    Thanks

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by JohnBF on 23-Aug-04 11:34. )</P>If the phone has an e-mail address through the service provider, such as "phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com". I don't know if all service providers have this at no additional charge. I'm off to check on my Verizon account!

    Edit. It appears Verizons' service is free after registration. (At least I think so until my bill arrives. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>) Go to http://www.vtext.com if Verizon is your provider; with Verizon you can also set a nickname other than your phone number, such as "JohnBF@vtext.com". Thanks for dragging me into the 21st Century. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>

    AT&T subscribers can receive text messages on: phonenumber@mobile.att.net with maybe 120 characters left over after the address and subject line. Hopefully the recipient does not pay to receive text messages, only to send. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Many thanks for the suggestions. I have also found two add-ins which look as though they can do the job, at www.mediaburst.com and ws.textanywhere.net. I will have a look and see if they suit what I need.
    Again, thanks.
