Discover the Power of Email-to-SMS
Email is the universal standard in business communications, every day connecting billions of people from across the globe. Why not harness the familiarity and convenience of email with the instantaneous power of SMS? Email-to-SMS lets you utilise your existing workflow to send SMS, minimising training, costly integration exercises and overall, increases efficiency.
Our platform works by simply accepting emails, then converting them into a SMS compatible format, which in turn pushes the message to its intended recipients. You can send from your own personalised email platform, from single users or company wide listed addresses. You can even send from external CRM systems, internal programs, third-party software and external plugins. If you can send an email from it, it’s SMS compatible!
Bulk or Individual Sending
Sending an SMS via Email is not limited to single recipients. You can also send to multiple people by specifying multiple addresses in the TO field of your email client.
Incoming SMS and Email Alerts
The Email-to-SMS service is capable of allowing recipients the ability to reply to your messages. This is called Incoming SMS or 2-way messaging. There are several configurable options inside your MXT Account Settings which will control how your email is delivered and replied to.
Upon delivery confirmation from the carrier, SMSGlobal can notify you of message delivery status. This status will indicate whether the carrier was successful in delivering the message to the handset or whether an error occurred.
We’ve made it super easy to get started, all you need is an MXT account and your preferred email client. The video below demonstrates how simple the Email-to-SMS setup process is once you have registered your account.

Does your CRM, accounting or other software have email triggers or notifications? Why not use them to send an SMS? Many software platforms have auto alert functionality built into them including billing reminders, calendar notifications or other important updates. By configuring your software to send an email notification to our system, we can process the notification and deliver it as an SMS.
A real world example
One of our accounting clients uses an established CRM package for scheduling client reminders around tax time. Sending out notifications via email, they noticed a poor response rate in comparison to previous years. Many of their clients claimed they didn’t receive the email messages, which were getting lost in spam filers and between junk mail items.
Using their existing CRM they now contact customers via SMS, all from the same platform and with no additional integration work. SMSGlobal’s Email-to-SMS solution, simply converts short email reminders to SMS. It has dramatically helped improve response rates and business efficiencies.
