Send SMS Messages via Email

Ever wanted to send an SMS message via email? With this zap, you'll finally be able to do just that.

How it Works

Zapier has a built-in email tool that'll give you a unique email address just for sending SMS messages. You'll copy that email address, send a new message with the phone number of your recipient as the subject and the SMS message as the body of the email. Zapier will turn that email into an SMS, and send it out for you on your Twilio account.

What You Need

  1. A Twilio account with an activated phone number, and enough credit to send SMS messages
  2. An email account

Got that? Then let's get started.
