S/MMS to a single user

Sending messages is a simple process with smsPULSE, as easy as using a mobile phone. There are other options for sending messages with smsPULSE but this page only shows how to send messages from the Notes Client, using this database only. Please speak to the person who made this application available to you about how you might integrate SMS into business processes handled by you.

For sending messages from Microsoft Outlook see here Database 'sms.HELP', View 'Help Documents', Document 'Microsoft Outlook'.

Remember to click on the gray boxes:

Using Contacts
When you send SMS you can ask the system to store the details of the person you are using. You may also create these records by copying documents from the Personal Address Book. Once these records exist in the database you can use these here:

Click on Contacts tab:
Click on the roundbutton bar to use the selected contacts.
    Unicode Characters
    Use this option if the text you are about to send includes Non-Germanic characters. This will ensure your text is readable by your recipients in almost any language. This feature also works for Semite languages such as Arabic and Hebrew. Note that messages using Unicode characters are 70 letters long only. From smsPULSE V4 Unicode conversion is automatic.

    Sending SMS using Notes mail
    You may use your standard Notes mail program to send SMS with smsPULSE. Your system administrator would have had to arrange a special email address for this purpose. Follow the steps below:
    1. Create a new memo (click <Ctrl>M)
    2. In the "Send To" field type the address you were given by your administrator, say
    3. In the subject field type the phone numbers in the standard smsPULSE format: <countryCode><phoneNumberNoLeadingZeros>, for example 447787538925. You may send to multiple numbers by typing more numbers and separating them with a comma: 447787123456,447787123457,447787123458
    4. In the Body of the memo type the contents of your message:

    Note: If you use the Automatic country code feature, a number in the format 07787538925, for example, will be automatically converted to 447787538925, if the country code was set to 44. To force the country code to that for France, for example, use the + sign ahead of the number, including the country code. So, +3345734573 will not be modified and 44 will not be added to produce a correct address. Instead, the number being used will simply be 3345734573 (a French number).

    Sending using Foreign Domain and Directory Assistance
    These options allow you to send messages in the format of Name@ForeignDomain. The name may actually be a number too. For example 447787538925@smsPULSE or sales@smsPULSE. Name resolution is performed at the smsPULSE server end. To force a message to use the attached GSM device (DM version only), add "gsm" to your number. For example 447787538925gsm@smsPULSE.

    Please note that from smsPULSE V6.0.4, smsPULSE will also resolve numbers in the main corporate directory. If you use an Exchange server please ensure that its directory and the use used by smsPULSE are synchronising.

    1. Within your mail file click on "Create\Special". The following dialogue will appear:
