The Outlook Mobile Service (OMS) was introduced in Outlook 2007 to allow you to send and receive text messages in Outlook. It also enables you to configure mobile notifications to have important messages, calendar summaries, and reminders forwarded to your mobile phone as text messages. The OMS features depend on hosting providers which provide the connection between Outlook and your mobile phone.
Until now, few users in North America were able to use these features because only a few wireless service providers were supported by SMSLink, the only hosting provider available in North America when Outlook 2007 was released. With the recent introduction of SMSOfficer, a new OMS hosting provider, you can send and receive text messages in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 regardless of which wireless service provider you use.

One of the best posts I've ever read from anyone at Microsoft. Well done. I shared it on twitter just now.
Although tehnically speaking excellent solution, price of SMS message offered by SMSOfficer is way above standard SMS prices. One would think that they'd go with lower prices to attract customers ... too bad ...
One question here - If you have to connect your phone to Outlook to send SMS then why do you have the option to send message notifications to a phone? Either you need to be at the computer or you need to use 2 phones! Please clarify.
Am I missing something? I can't find prices anywhere on the SMSOfficer site. Surely you can find this out before signing up?
Very nicely written... and images really made the magic!! Hats off..
I agree with the excellent solution but the pricing is higher than I will pay.
Outlook Mobile Services would have been a fantastic way to leverage Microsoft's existing mobile / VoIP / messaging / voice recognition capabilities in a highly relevant way.
Quick question, I know that the message are automatically forwarded to your phone, but when it does this, it "reads" the message in my personal folder, so most of the time I have no idea when people send me email messages until I individually check everyone in my SMS box, which could usually be over 300 per day. Currently I also have set a rule to automatically place messages send "To" me to automatically go into my personal mailbox. My question is "Is their a rule or setting somewhere to not necessarily forward the email to my phone, but copy it so I still have the email showing in my Inbox." Is there a rule I can set to not make these message show up as read once they've been forwarded to my phone?
We are an SMS provider in Central and Eastern Europe, one of the most experienced in the region (started operations in 2002). How could we register to become a provider for Outlook Mobile Service? We can deliver significant lower prices (as low as 75% lower than smsofficer) and guaranteed quality (we have direct connections with the mobile operators). (dan at simplus.ro)
I setup an account and sent out 2 test messages (different people) and both got the message but I never got either reply. I then read their "Support" Section and found "In some cases, mainly in the USA and Canada the mobile operators do not allow to set the correct sender ID and thus the recipient needs to manually type the reply number or select from his address book." Here is the problem - the person sending the reply assumes that their message will get to me and it doesn't AND they see no error. So if I use the SMSOfficer system, people replying think I get their reply message when in fact it gets lost. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Come on, this is beta software and SMSOfficer should clearly mark it beta software right on their main webpage! Lost replies without error message/error notification! Please... I emailed tech support and they said: "This issue is known and unfortunately the US mobile carriers do not allow setting the sender's mobile number." Can someone send me an email when this thing actually works?
i've just started using sms. i set up a rule to forward messages from a couple of people and it works, mostly.
on forwarded messages, i only get the sender and subject line, no message body - but if i send a message directly from outlook to my phone # the entire message comes thru to my phone??? any ideas?
Is there any way to use Outlook VBA to send sms. It would be very helpful. Tnx.
Is there a way to use Messaging on the Phone itself to send messages using smsofficer?
Reason, Cingular charges 25 cents per international sms, which is a lot compared to about 6 cents from smsofficer.
Of course I have outlook on the phone.
No. User cannot use the account from SMSOfficer to send text message directly from phone. User has to configure the SMSOfficer account on his Outlook 2007 and send from there. Regards, Baisong Wei
The "test send" functions, but when I try to send a text using SMSOfficer, I get the error message from Outlook 2010 "One or More Parameter Values are not accurate". How can I fix this?
