Reference for Cell Email Addresses (Email to SMS): Setup for Text Alert Destinations

Many of our clients set up their Chronotek accounts to get alerts when employees clock in or out, or when they are late to a scheduled job.  We send these alerts from our email address to theirs, and can send them as text messages as well.  Sending messages from email to text requires a cell ‘email address’.   The technical term for text delivery this way is “email to SMS”.  SMS stands for “Short Message Service”.

We put together a quick reference for setting up new text alert destinations for your managers and supervisors.  Outside of our system, these formats work in your personal email ‘To:’ section to send email messages to someone as text messages.  It can be easier, if you are already sitting at your computer, to access your email account and pop off a quick text message, rather than having to pick up your phone to type out a message. To send an email to someone as a text message,  the proper format for your friend’s cell phone provider must be used.

Our phone and app-based timekeeping solution can send these alerts to multiple destinations.  Separate with a semicolon (;) just like in sending through email.

Some of our most popular providers’ formats:

Cell Provider Cell Email Address
