Using Outlook 2013? Microsoft no longer supports text messaging, but you can still use Outlook with our Email to SMS service. Find out more here.
Outlook is the second most popular email client in the world (after Gmail). If you’re one of the millions who use it, you can simplify your life by using Outlook Mobile Service (OMS) to send and receive your text messages too.
Imagine having only one program to check for emails, text messages, appointment reminders, or contact information. It’s a great option for individual users, or businesses that only send one on one or small group texts. Here are some other great features:
OMS lets you send texts just like you send emails. It even files them in the same sent folder as your emails.
Messages you compose can be sent as both an email and a text message
Preview your messages to see what they look like before sending
Text message replies can be sent to your email in Outlook, your mobile phone, or both when you use a virtual mobile number
Forward your emails, reminders, and appointments to your mobile manually or automatically
Text messages are sent via the fastsms gateway so you get the same fast speed and delivery rates of regular text messages
Automatically merge your contacts that have mobile numbers into a mobile address book for easy sending
Use settings to limit the number of messages you send via text to control costs
And because you can send messages right from inside Outlook, businesses that need to restrict employee access to the Internet often find OMS to be a great option. There’s no need for a browser, or changes in security settings to allow access to a web based service through your firewall.
“I have been looking at sending texts to my customers for a while now from within Microsoft Outlook but with little or no success. Fastsms have refreshed my faith that there are people out there offering affordable, technology driven business solutions at affordable prices with excellent customer care.”
