We currently have Exchange 2013 on premises.  We would like to know of a way to call a cell phone when a particular email arrives.
We have a user that receives an emergency email periodically and sometimes misses the email because the email notification is not loud enough, or the person is asleep.
Of course we are looking for an inexpensive solution that is easy to implement.

You can use the Unified Messaging feature and use Call Answering Rules to redirect emergency messages to different telephone numbers.

I have done something similar, but was sending as a SMS to my mobile. But client use to pay good amount for SMS to it's vendor, basically, i use to monitor db status or server status, when ever it goes down, i get an sms alert to my mobile.
