SMTP/Email to SMS

If you want to connect to our SMS Gateway and send email to SMS, the best way is with a server-generated e-mail, making SMTP the connection for you. This is the industry standard used by operators to interconnect for high-volume text messaging. Use email to SMS to send sms notifications, reminders, alerts or any other type of text message all over the world via an email server and our bulk SMS SMTP API.

Why choose the SMTP API?

SMTP messaging, also known as email to SMS, is a reliable and relatively easy way to send bulk text messages. 

  • Like all our APIs, the SMTP connection supports text, Unicode, binary SMS and flash messaging.

  • It gives you support for extended length messages.

  • You're able to use our converters to turn ringtones and logos into the correct format.

  • You can use our VCard and VCal converters.

  • Delivery acknowledgement and Sender ID can be set up.

  • Gateway escalation: Should the message be delayed for a predefined length of time, it can be escalated to an alternative delivery gateway. Queuing lets you specify up to 3 prioritized queues which your messages can be sent out on.

  • Delivery delay gives you the ability to specify a delay of up to 7 days when sending messages.

  • You can set up batch sending.

  • While two-way messaging is not a feature of SMTP you can always make use of HTTP, FTP or SMPP to receive incoming messages.

The SMTP API is ideal for:

Educating your audience and keeping them informed about the latest developments in your business.
