    In this case you need to find an SMS service provider who can reach the mobile phones in your area. This SMS service provider should be able to provide SMS service through the Internet. To find such a provider, you can check our website where we list some of them: SMPP SMS Service providers. Once you have found such a provider, you need to sign up for their service to get the connection parameters. You can use these parameters to configure your Ozeki NG SMS Gateway software.

    SMS messaging process with Windows Mail

    At first you need to specify the address of the recipient in Windows Mail. Your composed e-mail message then will be forwarded with the help of SMTP protocol to the SMTP server of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. The gateway will process it and sends an SMS message with the subject and the body of your e-mail up to 160 characters.

    On the other hand, you can also receive SMS from mobile phones to your Windows Mail. In this case the text message is received in the admin's inbox in Ozeki NG SMS Gateway. With its built-in POP3 server, the SMS gateway will forward this text message to your mail client. The body of the SMS message will be received as an e-mail message. This process can be examined in Figure 2.
