Emails (SMS) Preferences - The ‘Emails’ preference tab

The SMS function in Migration Manager allows users to harness the Email to SMS protocol to send an SMS to their clients. Note that Migration Manager does not actually send the SMS - for that you will need to register for and use a third-party SMS gateway service. What Migration Manager does is converts mobile phone numbers in to an acceptable Email to SMS formatted addresses that can then be used in an email for sending to the SMS gateway which will then convert the email to an SMS.

For full details on enabling SMS, see: How to Enable SMS

Accessing the Emails (Email to SMS) tab

From the Main Menu, select Tools, then Administrative, then Preferences.

If you don’t have access to this feature, you may need to log into Migration Manager as user Administrator.

In Preferences, select the Emails tab.

Enable SMS

To enable the Email to SMS function you will need to:

  1. Slide the Enable Email to SMS functionality to ON
  2. Insert the SMS gateway address. It is this address that will convert the mobile phone number to an acceptable Email to SMS address i.e. [email protected]
  3. If the gateway service you are using does not automatically remove the leading zero of a mobile phone number, slide Remove leading Zero from number to Yes


Once the changes have been made, select click Save & Exit.
