Frequently Asked Questions
Below are answers to frequently asked questions regarding email to SMS, bulk texting and our SMS software:
How to send text messages via email?
The email to SMS gateway represents an extremely useful and convenient way of sending and receiving text messages via the email application that you are already familiar with.
Find out how to send email to text and configure your SMS gateway settings:
Step #1: Activate texting on your email address by adding it to the allowed list.
Step #2: Select what content to include in the SMS message, as well as maximum length, in the Send & Receive Settings.

If anyone replies to your text, you will receive it via email and SMS Chat.
How can I exclude my email signature when I send a text message via email?
Our email to SMS system recognises and excludes most standard footers, but if this does not work with your particular footer, there is always the option of introducing a cut-line. We recognise a new line followed by a minimum of five hyphens (—–) or stars (*****) as the end of the text message. Everything down to but not including the cut-line will be sent.
Can I schedule text messages via the email to SMS service?
TextMagic does not offer a scheduling logic for the email to SMS service. You should schedule the email to be sent to TextMagic later using your email application. Whenever we receive an email, we will immediately send a text message.
How long can an SMS message be?
TextMagic allows you to configure the length of your SMS message on the Send & Receive Settings page. The maximum length is 918 GSM characters – six concatenated parts.
How Can I Use SMS distribution Lists?
You can set-up SMS distribution lists to automatically reach out to multiple subscribers at the same time. Distribution lists can be set-up from the Distribution Lists page.
How can I receive SMS notifications from third-party services using TextMagic?
