Email to SMS
Answered

I can send an SMS to my phone via outlook by sending an email to <phone number>@messaging.sprintpcs.com, but I've got a small automated program that sends out an email to several different people on ATT and Verizon a couple of times a day.   However, after the first couple of days, even though the messages appear to be sent to all phone accounts, it does not make it to my ting phone while it does make it to the phones on the other 2 networks.

I suspect there is some sort of spam filter and I need to set up some sort of white list somewhere.  How do I do that?

Thanks!

JW

  • Hi Jon,

    <phonenumber> @message.ting.com (e.g. 5033219876@message.ting.com) should work for you if you need to send an email to text message to a Ting phone.

  • Hey Renny, So I tried that address and it does not work.  I just ported my wifes number from Verizon where I was able to email her via  #@vtext.com and it always worked.  Now that we have ting the voice service, texting and data all work fine but i've tried both the @message.ting.com address and the *#@messaging.sprintpcs.com *.  Neither of which have worked.  Please advise.

  • Hey Jon, are you using the number on the CDMA or GSM network?

    If on CDMA, you should use <10-digit phone number>@message.ting.com

    If on GSM, please use <10-digit phone number>@tmomail.net 

    You can find more information through  this link.

  • Having trouble with SMS using info as above. I run DNS servers for a living and get this looking up these records:

    $ nslookup message.ting.com

    Server: X.X.X.X

    Non-authoritative answer:

    *** Can't find message.ting.com: No answer

    Get the same for messaging.sprintpcs.com. Something I should know.
