We must fight spam for the same reason we fight crime: not because we are naive enough to believe that we will ever stamp it out, but because we do not want the kind of world that results when no one stands against crime.  - Geoffrey Welsh

Subject: Re: Any Non-free SMS Gateways for e-mail to SMS on Wireless Carriers Message-ID: <k247nh$h7q$1@speranza.aioe.org> You can use bulksms.com Their email gateway is easy to use. When you forward the message you need to add a password wiht the subject. My only complain about them is that they don't let you change the sender id in the USA (I guess some goverment regulation in the USA does not allow them to do that). Otherwise it is much more convenient than typing in the tiny cell phone keyboard.
