Sending SMS from Access

Has anyone ever done this? How difficult would it be? Is there anything
written about how to do it?

TTBOMK there is no publicly available free SMS protocol through which
we can exchange messages using Access. Every network is owned; every
network is fee driven; every network has propietary access.

I've looked, considered and probed. I've achieved nothing.

Please, post any promising leads you come upon.

You would have to pay for the service and buy "credit" from sms
providers and upload a CVS file to an FTP server.

I have not done it myself but I'm planning to do so.

Take a look at this.

Ten thousand spams to your normal e-mail is annoying.
Imagine ten thousand spam e-mails to our cells.

I've worked on a project doing this (to cells whose owner have signed a
release). It's trivial to accomplish and it's scary.
To prevent cell e-mail spam my carrier, Rogers, has allowed its
subscribers to replace the 99**********@Rogers.Com with
So***********@Rogers.Com and has instituted as "you have e-mail from
____" notice to which you must reply with READ before having it
downloaded.
Of course, this makes money for Rogers. Is it worth it? Not sure.

Years ago I wrote an app that monitored the help desk database and
launched pager alerts to managers when serious incidents were logged.
They really liked it, until they were having lunch together and the logic
in my code when haywire and started sending pages like mad. Imagine
a table full of managers at a restaurant with pagers going off like
morters. We had a good laugh back at the office.

Yes. We do it from our custom Access-based system using 24x. Just go to
www.24x.com

It is very easy to implement and works very well - you need an Internet
connection though (obviously).
