    GROUPNAME@TYPEOFSMS.skebby.com

    The GROUPNAME must be one word, the same as the one saved on Skebby.com and contain at least one alphabetic char.

    SMS Sender

    All SMS will be sent from the default Sender ID set up on your Skebby account. If you are using SMS Classic, in the Subject field you'll be able to personalise Sender ID for each message sent with an alphanumeric string (only the first 11 alphanumeric characters will be taken into account). If you're using SMS Basic, the email subject line will be ignored.

     

    Message text

    The message text must be written within the body of the email where you'd usually write the text of your email. If the body of the email is empty, the email will be sent but the SMS will not arrive (no message charged).

     

    End of SMS

    The ## character indicates the end of the text to be sent: it marks the end of the SMS and must always be included. Any text after ## (e.g. your email accounts's auto signature) will not be sent. After the character ## you can enter the list of the recipieints of the SMS using the standard format MOBILENUMBER@TYPEOFSMS.skebby.com without any spaces or other characters between one address and the others.

     

    Length of SMS

    You can send messages of up to 1530 characters joined together as a single message (SMS Classic), up to 1549 divided over 9 SMS (SMS Basic) and up to 1600 characters for SMS Skebby 0cent messages. The cost of sending depends on the length of the SMS: it is calculated for every 152 characters after the first message for SMS Classic and every 155 characters for SMS Basic (the second SMS contains 151 characters).

     

    PIN Authentication

    You can request PIN authentication when sending SMS to Email for greater security. You'll need to set it up in your Skebby account settings: in order to send SMS by email the sender must include an address among the recipients, e.g.: yourpin123@pin.skebby.com, where "yourpin123" corresponds to an alphanumeric security code (minimum 6 characters), which is indicated by the user in the Private Area i.e. Skebby.com > Login > Settings > Send SMS > Email to SMS. If you choose PIN authentication, to send an SMS from any email address you've registered it will be compulsory to enter the email address with PIN as one of the recipients, otherwise the message will not be sent.
