How to Send Email to SMS Messages

You must enable Email to SMS in your Textlocal account before getting started. To enable this, login to your account, click on Settings, then Email2SMS, and check the ‘Activate Email 2 SMS’ checkbox.

Note: Default Email to SMS configuration is intended for limited usage (up to 100 SMS/day). For higher volumes, we recommend you upgrade to a dedicated route with your own custom domain i.e., start sending emails to anyNumber@BusinessName.textlocal.in instead of anyNumber@sms.textlocal.in. Contact sales to setup a dedicated Email2SMS route.

1. Add message recipients

The multi-purpose 'subject' field brings you the full features of Messenger directly into your mail client. Compose your subject line to include optional parameters or just leave it blank to use the default account settings.

We'll automatically upload and convert it into a trackable shortlink and include it in the SMS.

Note: If you plan to send more than 100 emails/day, please contact us.
