Did you know you can send text messages from Outlook? Because you can. You'll need to know which cellular provider your contact is using, such as AT&T or Verizon. When composing the email, enter their cell phone number into the To field just like an email address. Then append the @ symbol along with the special domain name that most cellular providers have for text messaging. For example, AT&T uses text.att.net.
So to email Steve, we're going to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the free Exercise File provided with this course, you'll find TextMessageEmailAddresses, which includes email domains for the most common providers in the US. If you can't find yours, try searching online or asking the provider. Remember to keep the email short, about 140 characters, and don't forget that your recipient may have to pay when they receive a text message.
Let's check out tip number 4.
