Send text messages using email SMS gateways.

Project Description

Module for sending SMS via email SMS gateways. Requires an email account to send from, and for the phone service provider of the recipient to be known.

Email SMS gateways are unreliable at best. This is not a suitable method for sending texts for any production use. This is, however, a free and easy way to prototype SMS-based services.


>>> yahoo_smtp_server = ""
>>> import emailsms
>>> import smtplib
>>> from_address = '
>>> smtp = smtplib.SMTP(yahoo_smtp_server, 587)
>>> smtp.starttls()
>>> smtp.login(username, password)
>>> smtp = emailsms.gmail_smtp(from_address, 'password')
>>> emailsms.send(smtp, from_address, '0000000000', "Hi it's me", 'Verizon')
>>> print emailsms.carriers
