It has nothing to do with thunderbird or outlook or mac mail or webmail.  The mobile carriers can allow  phonenumber@vtext.com. I have the big  list here http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Protocols/Q_27955479.html#a38655695

If they have google voice, then they have a gmail and you are better off mailing that.  If you are trying to send bulk sms, then you should use a 3rd party gateway like http://americas.clickatell.com/  There are a lot of players in this space.

There is not a way to send an email to a google voice number.

Yes, you can send a text message to a google voice number just as if it is a mobile phone. I use google voice for my main number and love it.

Sorry that it's not clear in the question -
But I'm trying to send it from email (not gmail), using Thunderbird. I can send to mobile users, each carrier having their own address, preceded by the users phone number, like this:
Sprint: phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
Verizon: phonenumber@vtext.com
