How to Send Email to SMS

Introduction

Email to SMS is a feature that allows users to send SMS to mobile phone number via email. When users would like to send a SMS, they just need to send an email to the Yeastar S-Series system email address, with the destination mobile phone number as the email subject. The system will then receive the email and forward the email to the GSM/3G port, so that the email can be sent out through SMS to the expected destinations.

This guide introduces how to configure Email to SMS on Yeastar S-Series VoIP PBX.

Configuring Email to SMS
