    SMS texting

    Question on SMS ?
    Videotron uses sms texting with phone number only, example: 514-222-3333
    and not like the competitors sms texting example: 5142223333@pcs.rogers.ca
    This poses a problem for me, does anyone know how to forwarded an email example: myemail@domainname.com to 5142223333 (SMS)

    Thanks

    What I would do is send an sms to your email first, at which point you just go check your email, and forward whichever email your trying to forward to the address that was used to send you the initial email.
    GO BRONCOS!!!!

    Thanks for your tip, but my problem is my alarm system it uses email only, it sends only an email which can take 5 to 15 minutes to receive on a cell, email forwarded to text is instant.

    It does not seem that this feature is currently available at the moment. The only Web to SMS feature available is through their Customer Centre section. In order to send the SMS using it, you must be a mobile telephony subscriber.

    I tried the solution suggested by card0124 but it does not work in the opposite direction. You can send a test message using the SMS/MMS built-in App to an e-mail address although it will count as an MMS. Probably due to the fact it uses the MMSC address (media.videotron.com) to carry its data over the web which is the APN for MMS'.

    The message received on my email was from: 1xxxxxxxxxx@media.videotron.com

    After I sent a short message (one word: test; no images), I received an undeliverable mail notification:

    Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

    1xxxxxxxxxx@media.videotron.com

    Technical details of permanent failure:
    DNS Error: Domain name not found


    ------ original message ------

    test

    /////
    Here's the beginning of the header information:
    Received: from mcnvt11.mms.videotron.com ([10.23.37.57])
    by vl-mh-mrz25.ip.videotron.ca
    (Sun Java(tm) System Messaging Server 6.3-8.01 (built Dec 16 2008; 32bit))

    myaddress@videotron.ca; Sun, 21 Nov 2010 19:51:25 -0500 (EST)


    The IP address does not respond to any traceroute, ping or whois command because it is an IP part of their internal network infrastructure.

    Positive. I've done the same tests. Only web sms from costumer web client works.
