Send SMS Text Messages to a Mobile Cell Phone

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to use Microsoft Outlook and an Email-to-SMS gateway address to send text messages from Microsoft Access.

Cameron from Olympia, Washington (a Gold Member) asks: I run a service business. I'd like the ability to be able to send SMS text messages to my customers to remind them of an upcoming appointment, or to let them know their technician is on the way. So many people don't check email regularly, but everyone carries their cell phones nowdays. Can this be done from my Access database?


Members will learn how to send SMS text messages without using an email gateway. We will set up a free trial account on Twilio and use their API to send messages. This way, we avoid having to know the customer's cell carrier too.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the files from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you're not a member, Join Today!

Member Update

  • 2023-05-10: A few people have told me that the VB code that I use in the Extended Cut to send SMS using Twilio's API no longer works and that they have stopped offering that service. There is another service available for a fee. I don't know all of the details about this yet as I haven't really looked into it but if enough of you are interested in this topic and you want me to explore it further post a comment down below. And also if you want to learn more about this read the comments down below. I pinned one of them that talks about this topic in detail.
