How do you send email to SMS text?

Here’s how you can configure email to text with our SMS gateway:

Step #1: Activate texting on your email address by adding it to the allowed list.

Step #2: Select the content you want to include in the SMS message, as well as maximum length, in the Send & Receive Settings.

Step #3: Now you are ready to send text to email. The process is just like sending a normal email. Add the recipient’s address as countrycode  [email protected], type your message and click Send.

If anyone replies to your text, you will receive it via email and SMS Chat.

For further information about how to set up your email to SMS allowed addresses we recommend checking out our dedicated service page.

How can I exclude my email signature when I send a text message via email?

Our email to SMS system recognizes 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 recognize 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 text to email service, but scheduling should be available directly from your email application, so you can schedule emails 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?

We recommend that you use a distribution list to receive SMS notifications from third-party services.

Please do the following:

Step #1: Create a distribution list.

Step #2: Create a rule and organize forwarding to your distribution list email address in Gmail.

Step #3: When we receive an email from you, we will automatically forward a text message to all recipients in your list.
