SMS is one of the most preferred mode of communication and therefore it would be nice to send an email notification directly to an sms receiver. This gateway retrieves the mails and place it to the sms spool directory for sending.
MailSmsGateway is a simple interface between mailing and sms services (like smstools3).
How does it work ?
An email client sends mail messages to an email account. The email account can be located under a linux server (sendmail), Microsoft Exchange or any other email server.
You have now 4 possibilities to retrieve the emails and pass it over to the sms service (at the moment smstools3 is supported).
Under *nix systems:
small and efficient and gets the job done.
