Send bulk SMS text messages using Outlook

With our Outlook Mobile Service you can send bulk SMS text messages directly from within Microsoft Outlook 2007 and later versions, and from Microsoft SharePoint 2010.

How the Outlook Mobile Service works

After configuring Outlook (see the steps below) you can choose one or multiple contacts from your Outlook Address Book or Global Address List, and then select "Send Text Message" from the menu. Outlook will display a small window into which you type your SMS text message. Upon pressing the "Send" button, Outlook submits the SMS text message for delivery via our SMS gateway.
