One Email can send to Thousands of Mobiles

service icon

You can use email to sms to send a single message from your email client to a predefined distribution list of mobile numbers. This will then be relayed on to the mobile numbers on the list you prepared.

Use this to contact groups of individuals large and small as quickly and efficiently as possible.




Creating a distribution list.

To create a distribution list, login to your account and follow the 'setup' menu, followed by 'manage distribution lists'.

You can copy your mobile numbers into a distribution list - The format of the list is either one mobile number per line with no commas or: mobilenumber1,mobilenumber2,mobilenumber3, – ie appended by commas with no spaces.

Paste this list of numbers into the "mobile number list" box on site, enter a name for the list, and press 'validate'. You will be presented with the imported data and asked to confirm it appears as expected. When this is ok, the distribution list will be saved for use.



Creating an email address.

Once you have checked through your list of numbers, go the 'email to sms' menu, followed by 'distribution list'. From here you can associate an email address the message will be sent from and the distribution list you have setup.

After you have added the association, a 30 character 'key reference' will be shown.

This is unique to that association and should be kept secret from the outside world.



Sending a message to your distribution list.


To send a message to your distribution list, send an email to:

<keyreference>@dist.aql.com

Example email address:

40dda80b3c411f311301cd915e829b@dist.aql.com

The text message will then be taken from the first 160 characters of the subject and message body together. You will receive a confirmation/error message from the system notifying you if the messages have been sent out, or whether you do not have sufficient credit.
