What is Email SMS?

It's a service that allows you to send an SMS directly from your email account. Echo for Email, our Email to SMS service, can be used to send SMS messages from all popular email clients, servers, webmail or any software that can output an email message.

Easy to set up

Echo for Email guides you through the set-up process. The powerful online tool steps you through getting yourself set-up, managing users, controlling your settings - and sending your first message.

Easy to use

No need to stop using your existing email service. Once you’re set-up just send an email to the cell phone @echoemail.net and we’ll deliver it as an SMS immediately.

Works with all email services

Whether you use Exchange, Outlook or online services such as Gmail, Echo for Email delivers the same functionality. It even works with server alerting software – and is just as easy to set up.

Ideal for server alerts

As long as your software can send an email you can use Echo for Email. Instant SMS alerting keeps you up to date and reduces business disruption.
