SMS as E-mail through Gmail

The Ozeki SMS Gateway can send messages through your Gmail's SMTP connection so it can forward incoming SMS messages by email.

Step 1 - Add new Gmail user

Gmail Users can be easily installed and configured through the browser GUI of Ozeki SMS Gateway. So first, open the SMS Gateway, and click on the Add new user/application (Figure 1).

Step 5 - Configure the security settings of Gmail account

After you created the Gmail client connection, you need to do some modifications to the security settings of your Gmail account. For that, just type 'https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps' in your browser and hit Enter. Here (Figure 5), you just need to turn the 'Less secure apps access' on. This will ensure that SMS Gateway is going to have access to Gmail's server.

Step 6 - SMS sent as e-mail

Finally in the Events tab you can see that when an sms arrives on this SMTP client it is forwarded to the SMTP server which sends it to the recipient's email address (Figure 6).
