Mahesh,
This solution requires a webbrowser or iwebbrowser in an application.  I created a console app that does not have UI that is called by another app.  This small console alert app will be called multiples times, sends the text alert, and then exits.

I figured it out.  All I need to do is use a cell phone # that can also be used as email address.
