Text message updates via ActiveSync

V16Pro asked

Good afternoon!,

I was recently asked if I could send email and scheduling updates as text messages to one of our clients. They do not own a computer and only have a basic cell phone with text and voice services.

We are running Exchange 2007 with ActiveSync, but I am not certain as to how, or if, I can send text-based only messages from our server.

The scenario would play out like this:
1.Manager sends out an operations update, or a new schedule.
2. A text-based version of this update is sent to the user's cell phone.

Is this possible to do? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
