Outlook 2013-2016: Email to SMS
For Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016 users, ASPSMS provides the service
How does Email to SMS work?
Emails sent to <Recipient>@smtp.aspsms.com (for example firstname.lastname@example.org) are accepted by the ASPSMS SMTP interface, interpreted and then delivered as SMS within seconds.
Authentication is done by the sender's email address. This email address must be different from the email address of the user's ASPSMS account.
The implicit authentication by SMTP Originator means that not the usually used combination of the Userkey and the password is the "secret" that entitles someone to send SMS but the sender's email address is. Therefore, please read carefully our setup instructions below.
Email to SMS Setup1. Unlock secret email address
We recommend that the secret email address is not self-explanatory. It has to differ from the ASPSMS account email address and it has to be kept as carefully secret, as the combination of the Userkey and the password. The secret email address must be notified to us and has to be unlocked by the ASPSMS system.
Let us know: via which ASPSMS Account and with what secret email address you want to send.
Good example: email@example.com
Bad example: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once we have confirmed the activation of the secret email address, you can get started. Send an email to email@example.com or use our support form to let us know the secret email address.
You are not limited only to one email address: if you run multiple Outlook installations and want to send email to SMS from different systems, just let us know all email addresses you want to have unlocked.
