As our company's IT support person, I broadcast a lot of emails to our domain users. I've set up Distribution Groups on our Exchange Server for different departments. Most of the personnel in these departments are deskbound for much of the workday; so, they would see/open these emails. However, our Service Department's end users (who have laptops) work on cars/trucks/tractors/equipment; so, they are not necessarily close enough to their laptops to be aware of emails that are delivered to their Outlook Inbox.
However, these same employees always have their cell phones on their person.
Is there a way for me to send an email that I compose on my own Outlook client and broadcast this email AS A TEXT MESSAGE to be received on those end users' cell phones? That is, to ALL members of a Distribution Group?
I'm aware this works on an individual basis by sending the email to: email@example.com as in: firstname.lastname@example.org (for Verizon)
I need to use this method to send to a Distribution Group.
