Hi,

I need to send data from microcontroller by email using GPRS. Does any one know where I can start from?
P.S:I can send the data from the microcontroller serially.

Thanx

Mazen,

GPRS is _packet_-switched network (not a cirquit-switched)!
All GPRS devices I have in my hands required that you put PPP  traffic on serial connection between PC/palm/other equipment and GPRS device. So your microcontroller should start speaking and understanding PPP. And on top of that you will need to get a SMTP client which will contact SMTP server via PPP.

References:

SMTP: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc0821.txt
PPP: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1661.txt

Good Look!

Well, I'm no hardware person, so can't say for sure,
but friend of mine from Arrow Nordic (www.arrownordic.lt) gave me a link:
