I need to send a text message from an internal domain account to various cell phones using a text message

I'm pretty sure it can be done, but I can't seem to figure it out...At least not on my cingular phone.  Shouldn't I just be able (for testing purposes) send an email from Outlook to <my phone number> and receive it as a text message on my phone (Treo 650, cingular )?

Hi tenover,

If you email yourcellphonenumber@cingularme.com it should work.

For example: 12345678@cingularme.com. I just tried it on my phone and it worked.

Good Luck!

Wow... I also meant to say your 10 digit cell phone number.

It should read something like this: 1234567890@cingularme.com.

Sorry if there is any confusion.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Yeah, that's what I thought...And you shouls receive that on yout Treo as a text message, correct?  It does not work for me, even though I have text messaging enabled, and can send and receive text messages from other cell phones.

tenover,

Yes, I just emailed my phone and the text went through. You are making sure you are emailing yournumber@cingularME.com right?

Make sure you have the ME on the end.

You may have to have Cingular's MEdia Net on your plan. Your best bet would be to call Cingular and find out.
