How Does It Work?
Using the trusty directSMS Email 2 SMS service, sending SMS messages is as simple as typing your message into your favourite email client (Outlook, Lotus Notes, Gmail, etc.) and pressing send. All you need do is to send an email to @directsms.com.au. Your email will be forwarded as an SMS to the mobile number specified.
Email 2 SMS is very handy for system outage notifications or for any event where it’s more convenient to send SMS messages from the email client you use every day instead of our Web 2 SMS web-based platform. Email 2 SMS is so smart, all replies for 2-way messages can be reliably routed back to the sender’s email inbox and mobile phone:

The video will show you how to set up and use our service to send SMS messages right from your email client.
Pay As You Go (Pre-paid) or Monthly Account?Pre-paid billing is great if your usage goes up and down every month. The pre-paid credits never expire and you can buy as many or as few credits as you need. If your usage is fairly regular, then a monthly plan is the way to go. The rates are cheaper than pre-paid, you will get more features thrown in for FREE and best of all, you will pay at the end of the month rather than up front!
