How to Send a Text Message (SMS or MMS) via Email

Open your NFC school email on your computer.

  1. In the "To" field, enter the 10-digit phone number you want to text, and add the corresponding email domain to the end of it. For example, if you are sending to a T-Mobile number, you would type the phone number plus @tmomail.net (e.g., 1234567890@tmomail.net). Do not include dashes.
  2. Fill in the subject line, and compose your message.
  3. Once you click send, the recipient will receive a text message. Replies to the text will come to your email, with the same subject you used.

Note: Text messages from a number beginning with "10101" were sent from an email address.

Email domain to place after phone number:

  • AT&T: phonenumber@txt.att.net
  • T-Mobile: phonenumber@tmomail.net
  • Sprint: phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
  • Verizon: phonenumber@vtext.com or phonenumber@vzwpix.com
  • Virgin Mobile: phonenumber@vmobl.com

 

How to Send an Email via Text Message (SMS or MMS)

To send an email through a text message on your phone:

  1. Open your texting app on your phone.
  2. In the recipient field, enter an email address where you would normally type in a phone number.
  3. Write your message as normal and send it. Your cell phone provider will convert your message into an email.

Note: When you send an email via text message it will show up as a regular email with text in the body of the email and with a .txt file attachment. If you send photos, videos, or audio files, those will come through as attachments, too.

In the “From” field will be the mobile number with a domain attached to it. The domain that appears depends on your cell phone service provider.
