Texting from Outlook

Texting from Outlook 2007 is built in. An Add-In (Microsoft Outlook SMS Add-in, MOSA) is available from Microsoft for Outlook 2003 users. Remember, the message will arrive in plain text even if you use HTML or other formats. And of course, you still can’t exceed 160 characters (including Subject). Just address your message to their phone number@their carrier.com (e.g. 2155551212@vtext.com).
