I routinely have been sending text messages to cell phones via Yahoo email but yesterday they failed with "550 relaying denied" given in the system response. Anyone else here use email to send text messages?

BTW, I successfully used Excite email to send the text message.

You can send to any phone when you know the carrier

Some sites support particular carriers or your email can do it when you know
the @xxx.xxx suffix. The prefix 123345676@xxx.xxx is the 1+phonenumber

Verison has this site

another site but you need to know the carrier
http://www.textem.net/

If you send from winmail or Yahoo mail just find the right suffix for the provider and know your friend's number and you're set.

Got it?

If someone can add to this please do. I send txts occasionally so it's 'good to know'

ie a lookup for each carrier's prefix ie 209.334.xxxx should only belong to one carrier for every case xxxx

Right or not?

OP, I use AIM to send txt messages to cell phones.. just something to think about if you cannot get it going with yahoo.

Mine aren't working either since late december and it's worked for years. It's a pain because my mom uses it to text me.

You can also send text msg's from Gmail

My son uses Google Voice to send & receive texts from his Samsung Galaxy Player and rooted Nook Color.

It is working again. I don't know if there were complaints and they changed it, or if it was a problem that was fixed, but the issue the OP and I were having for several days has been resolved.

It was a huge pain!

Thanks for the heads up; I'll try it!
