Email to SMS

 

 

ê For older devices without support, this function requires the licensing of the E-Mail to SMS module.

 

 

 

 

i The options for this function may be found in the web interface under Configuration - Email to SMS.

 

 

 

1. Configure E-mail to SMS

 

1. Firstly enter one or several accepted email domains (one domain per line), e.g.:

 

 

sms.local

 

brevis.one

 

 

 

2. Now enter one or several IP addresses or network addresses from which incoming emails are to be accepted (one address per line), e.g.:

 

 

192.168.1.2

 

192.168.1.0/24

 

 

 

3. Select the Blacklist or Whitelist and add one or several email addresses of the list (one address per line):

 

  1. Blacklist - The senders added to the list cannot use the email to SMS function.
  2. Whitelist - The senders added to the list can exclusively use the email to SMS function.
  3. The use of PHP Regular Expressions is possible here, e.g.:

 

 

(.*)@baddomain.com

 

(.*)@anotherbaddomain.com

 

 

 

4. Select the parts of the email from which the text message is generated:

 

  1. Subject & text
  2. Text
  3. Subject
