Hello,

I am currently developing a site'. I have a requirement of sending the emails, alerts on cell phone when a party makes a contact with another party.

Can anybody provide me the sample code to do this?

Thanks!

Hi run2004,

You can send a regular e-mail to send a SMS. The trick is to find the gateway related to the provider of the cell phone you are trying to reach. These can help:

·     http://www.notepage.net/smtp.htm
·     http://simpleforce.net/fastsms/cellpro.html

A free .NET based SMS library is available at http://www.scampers.org/steve/sms/libraries.htm. Maybe this one will help you.

Cheers!
