The South African Company uses the domain name of sms.co.za.
All you needto di is send an email to +countrycode(61)+mobile number -the
firstname.lastname@example.org and within a minute you get an message on your phone at no cost.
They limit the ammount of traffic to about 10 messages each minute but
because we are in Australia I have never had a rejection.
I know that there are products that interface to the Telco's networks like
Telstra but they charge you per message.
I would like to setup a service similar to SMS in S.Africa and only charge a
subscription fee for our customers.
