Problem in Sending sms to mobile

P: 40
Hi.,

I am using following code to send sms through e-mail

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. use Mail::Sendmail;
  2. %mail = (To => '10digitMobileNo@airtelkk.com',
  3.           From => "mymail\@company.com",
  4.               Message => "SMS Server"
  5.         );
  6.     $mail{Smtp} = '10.0.1.6';
  7.     if (sendmail (%mail)) { print "SMS sent OK.\n" }
  8.     else { print "Error sending mail: $Mail::Sendmail::error \n" }
  9.  
Its working fine., except for vodafone network..

I surfed in the net and found that vodafone network stops this service, i.e sending sms via email

Is there anyother way or built in modules available for sending free sms to mobile using perl script.

Thanks.,
Sabarish

Sure, there are plenty of sms modules if you search cpan for them.

I haven't personally used any of these though, so I cannot recommend any of them. Do keep in mind though, that the person receiving them gets charged and not you.

Its not the site that the OP provided that provides the "Email to SMS", but instead it is the provider, in this case Vodafone and such. If they do not provide support for Email to SMS, then there won't be anything on it.

I don't know that it lists the sizes supported, but here is a link that provides quite a list of providers that support the email to sms service.
