We have Exchange 2007 and I would like to know if it is possible to have customers send us an Email that can then be forwarded by our Exchange as a text message to our support mobile phone

Nothing native in exchange will do that.
You will need a 3rd party application.

Not only will nothing in Exchange do it, here in the UK it will be very expensive. There are no free options for sending text messages to phones.

Your best option is probably to change the phone to either a Blackberry or a Windows Mobile device and sync it instead.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

>>here in the UK it will be very expensive
Clickatell has 0.05...0.06 Euro /SMS when sending to UK mobile number
I doesn't think it is very expensive...
But, of course, I agree that mobile messaging solution is the best option here :)

Thanks for the link to the Article, but most of them refer to additional third party software of which I have looked at quite a few

What I really want to know is can Exchange 2007 act as an sms gateway and receive Emails from anywhere and convert them to text messages and send them to a mobile phone

Steveh24, as colleagues already told you before, without 3rd party software (service) it is impossible.

Ok, guys that's what I originally thought, I just wanted confirmation

I have been looking at a couple of SMS Gateway providors so will concentrate on them.

Many thanks

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
