Sending Text Message to Mobile Phone from Access 2010 Application

I have developed an Access Database application that includes Names, Email Addresses, Mobile Phones etc.....
I use the code shown below (please scroll) to launch Outlook 2010, and provide the Email Address and pre determined text and subject.  The user then Clicks "Send" in outlook to send the message.

I want to use http://www.smsofficer.com/ to send the same message to a Mobile Phone (from the database).  If you click this Link and watch the Demo, all that is needed is to "tell" Outlook to send this message as a text Message instead on an Email message.

Question:  How to I modify the ACCESS VBA code shown below, so that the user does not have to manually select "Text Message", before clicking "Send"?

Dim objOutlook As Outlook.Application
Dim objOutlookMsg As Outlook.MailItem
Dim objOutlookRecip As Outlook.Recipient
Dim objOutlookAttach As Outlook.Attachment

          Dim dbs As Database
         
          Set dbs = CurrentDb

          ' Create the Outlook session.
         
          Set objOutlook = New Outlook.Application

          ' Create the message.
          Set objOutlookMsg = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)

          With objOutlookMsg
              ' Add the To recipient(s) to the message.
                Set objOutlookRecip = .Recipients.Add(strEmailTo)
                objOutlookRecip.Type = olTo

            If Not IsNull(strEmailSubject) And strEmailText <> "" Then
             ' Set the Subject, Body,
                .Subject = strEmailSubject
            End If
           
            If Not IsNull(strEmailText) And strEmailText <> "" Then
                .Body = strEmailText & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
                .Importance = olImportanceHigh  'High importance
            End If

             ' Resolve each Recipient's name.
            For Each objOutlookRecip In .Recipients
                 objOutlookRecip.Resolve
            Next

                 .Display

        End With
        Set objOutlook = Nothing
Exit Sub


Thanks for your help!

Instead of:

    ' Create the message.
          Set objOutlookMsg = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)

it would be:

 Dim myMobileItem As Outlook.MobileItem
 Set myMobileItem = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMobileItemSMS)

then:

 myMobileItem.Body = "Text message was created by OM!"
 myMobileItem.Display

You could code it with using  the regular menu.  This can be done in similar manner to what is shown in this link.

To get correct syntax you may want to run the "go list my controls" subs like...

where you scroll down to "Executing built-in commands" and it may vary some depending on which Outlook you have.

Thanks Jim

This is a simple and straightforward solution and seems to work so far.

Do you recommend an SMS Service in particular?  The one I'm using "My MessageMedia" is not working as its supposed to!

Thanks

Sorry, have never worked in this area, so have no recommendations on providers.
