    Hello plumb2paint,

    It is possible to send SMS messages to your mobile phone via e-mail alerts, provided that your mobile phone service provider allows it.  You should ask your mobile service provider for the e-mail access gateway of their system for mobile phone accessing. (Not sure exactly what's the term for it)

    For example is T-Mobile.  Their subscribers can receive SMS messages from e-mail if the sender sends a message to the mobile number, followed by @t-mobile.net
    Example: 3335551111@t-mobile.net

    If you can share with us the mobile service provider that you're using, we can probably make a search and see what we can find.

    I hope you can find your provider's sms gateway email address in the following article:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_SMS_gateways

    It is also most probably that you will need to switch your Email Notification to plain text format.

    If this is still not clear for you, please provide us with your mobile carrier name. We can try to provide more accurate instructions.

    Thank you for provided information.

    Unfortunately, I have not found any information about their email to sms service. You may contact them to see if it is available option.

    Alternatively, you can use some 3rd party service like http://www.aql.com/, but it is not free.
