"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

not directly  possible with a sms gateway,  SMS and Email are two entirely different systems

I understand the differences between SMS and email. I found my answer , yes using the cellular carriers SMS gateway facilitates what I am trying to do. Just create an email message in outlook and use the recipient tel # plus the domain of the cellular carrier and you are done. The examples are below
