Send Text Messages
from your Email
Use any email client to send and receive SMS text messages as easily as an email.
What is email to text?
Convert emails to text, or texts to email, with this seamless service. Compatible with any email app.
Merge all your individual conversations via email and text into easily trackable message threads. These threads will live inside your Gmail, Outlook, Bigpond or any other webmail app. A copy of these messages will also stay in your Web SMS dashboard. This helps you stay on top of conversations regardless of where they come from.
Why Email to Text?
Often businesses need to switch between email and text. If your business wants to integrate SMS in addition to your current email-only offering, this service is for you.
Businesses often find that employees prefer to respond to emails via text, making it ideal for customer service enquiries and following up on prospects. The same can be said for those who prefer to answer SMS enquiries via email. Many businesses also prefer to use just one platform that they’re familiar with, rather than learning a new one.
How to Send Email to Text
Start by composing a new email and then placing the phone number you want to reach in front of @transmitsms.com in the “To” field.
Have your message delivered with your virtual mobile number by leaving the subject line blank or add in a Custom Sender ID.
Compose your message and hit send. When you receive a reply, conversations build inside their own individual threads within your email inbox.
