SMS to Email

The SMS to Email feature allows you to forward your incoming SMS/MMS messages to email address.

The SMS to Email feature lets you send incoming SMS or MMS messages to an email address. The forwarding can be done in two ways: either to the email of the last sender or to one fixed email address for all messages. Here is how the 2 modes work:

  1. Forwarding of incoming SMS to email of last sender (so called Two-way Email2SMS & SMS2Email)
    In this mode, when SMSEagle receives incoming SMS/MMS, it checks if earlier anyone was sending SMS to the number from incoming SMS using Email2SMS. If last sender is found, the incoming SMS is forwarded to the email address of that sender. If no last sender is found, then the incoming message is forwarded to a default email address given in plugin settings.
  2. It forwards all the incoming messages to one fixed email address.
    In this mode all incoming SMS/MMS messages are forwarded to always the same email address.


For your convenience “SMS To Email” feature allows you to add several rules that define what happens with each incoming SMS.

Adding/editing rules

For each rule a user can define:

  • If forwarding should always be sent or only form specified senders/when email contains
  • Choose a type of email forwarding: “To email of last sending user” (so called “Two-way Email2SMS & SMS&Email”) or “To fixed email address”
  • An email address
  • An email subject
