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!

Watch Question

you can email directly to most cell phones via the provider.



Thanks DJ! I'm poking around the Verizon Wireless one now.
What I have done for our company was:

- Create a mail contact with email address is: <phone number>@vtext.com (in your case)

- Send the Report or Update that mail contact.

Hope it helps,
