Frequently Asked Questions
Below are answers to frequently asked questions regarding email to SMS, bulk texting and our SMS software:
The email to SMS gateway is a cheap and convenient way of sending and receiving texts via the email application that you are already familiar with.
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 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.
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.
TextMagic does not offer a scheduling logic for the email to SMS service. Scheduling should be available directly from your email application. Schedule emails to be sent to TextMagic later using your email application. Whenever we receive an email, we will immediately send a text message.
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.
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.
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 organise forwarding in Gmail to your distribution list email address.
Step #3: When we receive an email from you, we will automatically forward a text message to all recipients in your list.
