What tools come with Email to SMS

Getting your hassle-free. Once done, you won't need to juggle between your SMS Broadcast account and your email inbox.

Auto-forward SMS replies

It works both ways! Your customers can text you back and you’ll receive replies as an e-mail instead. You can then reply to the e-mail and it’ll get sent as an SMS text message. You can register multiple email addresses and domains to send from, too.

Two-way threaded conversations

Keep track of the conversations between you and your customers. You’ll be able to look back on what was discussed in your email inbox, as well as in your SMS Broadcast account. Log in to see your message history, delivery reports, open rates, and more

Set SMS credit limits

Choose when to cut off your message to avoid using too many SMS credits. You can also omit subject lines and add {end} tags to exclude email signatures. This can make sending bulk SMS more cost-effective since a standard SMS credit is 160 characters.

Email to SMS API documentation

Many software packages with SMS capabilities can use the email-to-sms gateway to send messages. Just set up an account and add in the email address you’ll be sending from. Learn about our SMS API keys here.

A standard SMS is 160 characters. You can limit how many credits you use when sending an email so that a text message gets cut off and you won’t get charged for extra credits.

SMS Broadcast’s gateway itself is secure. We do, however, recommend making sure whichever email client you use has SPF and DKIM set up. Doing so protects your email account which in turn protects your SMS Broadcast credits.

You can add as many email addresses as you wish. Log in to our website to add email addresses, email groups, or domains that are allowed to send online SMS. Learn how this works here.

So easy to set up and couldn't be any simpler to use. SMS Broadcast is probably the best value on the market.
