note SMS benefits via a eMail Gateway

Email SMS Gateways allows you to send SMS messages with the GeeDee Software as well as almost any other email program (E.G. Outlook). There’s no additional software required.
 
It’s an easy service to setup and even easier to change when you locate a provider with a more inexpensive price.
 
With the majority of SMS service providers you will also receive a free confirmation email back of the SMS including it's contents.
 
GeeDee also logs and records the SMS message and it details.

prod_tip How to hide your mobile number - 160.com.au Settings

Prefer your business name instead of your mobile number to appear as the sender. For example instead of having your mobile number, 0411111111 as the sender you can make the sender "ABC Estates". To do this using our Email2SMS service insert a Sender ID that is less than 11 characters in brackets after your phone number in the subject.

For example:

To: 0411111111@160.com.au
Subject: 61422222222(ABC Estates)@secret123
Message: This is a test txt msg

 

prod_tip How to reply a SMS to your email - 160.com.au Settings

To direct SMS replies to your registered email address rather than to your registered mobile please add "!" to the beginning of the subject.
 
For example:

To: 0411111111@160.com.au
Subject: !61422222222@secret123
Message: This is a test txt msg

 

After you have signed up to our service you can not only send SMS from the web and your internet enabled mobile phone but you can also send SMS messages from your email client (for example Outlook, Hotmail, Gmail, etc.). To do this simply enter the mobile number that you want to send your SMS to followed by "160.com.au" in the "To" field of your email client eg: 0411111111@160.com.au and in the subject line of your email enter your mobile number that you registered when you signed up followed by an "@" and then your password for our service. Then simply type your text message on the email. For example if your mobile number is "0422222222" and your password was "secret123", you would insert 61422222222@secret123 in the subject of the email. The mobile number on the "To" field does not have to have the international code prefix of your country (eg: 61 for Australia) but the mobile number in the subject line needs the international code. An example can be seen below:

 

To: 0411111111@160.com.au

Subject: 61422222222@secret123

Message: This is a test txt msg
