Enabling Email to SMS
touchSMS allows you to send messages through your email client such as outlook and mail instead of having to login to the touchSMS Platform. In order to use Email to SMS you will need to ensure it is enabled in your touchSMS account.
1. Navigate to Integrations > Email to SMS and click Configure
2. Ensure that the Email to SMS Settings option is Enabled and define the Maximum Message Parts you would like to allow.
Tip: Maximum Message Parts allow you to limit the length of an SMS sent via Email to SMS. As a default your max character count is 160 including space (160 Characters = 1 SMS = 1 message part). If you exceed the 160 character count the system will cut off your SMS. If you would like to extend this to more than 1 Message Part click on the Maximum Message Part drop-down and select your options.
3. Click Save.
Below Registered Email Addresses, you can add multiple email address to your account to be able to send using Email to SMS.
