Are you aware that you could send an SMS text message directly from Microsoft Outlook 2011? All you need to do is create a new email message or forward an existing message if you prefer, could even be a Task or a Calendar entry if you want to forward that to a mobile device. Once you've figured that out, all you need is the phone number. That goes in the To field. And then after the phone number you will need to know the service provider for the mobile device you are sending this message to.
So you will need an @ sign, and then you'll need to know the details for the suffix. This can easily be found online just by searching, for example, for Rogers AT&T. I can look that up and know that it's pcs.rogers.com and type that in. Now I am ready to send the message off, but if you want to type in a new message or edit existing text, you could do that. We do want to keep text messages fairly short, say 140 characters maximum. Once you have got the text, you are ready to send it off.
It's a simple matter of hitting the Send button. Do keep in mind, however, that some recipients may have to pay for this service when they receive your text message.
