Email to sms with Mozilla Thunderbird
This guide explains how you can setup Ozeki SMS Gateway and Mozilla Thunderbird to send/receive sms. This configuration will allow you to setup e-mail to SMS and sms to e-mail forwarding.
The first step in order to be able to send and receive SMS using Thunderbird is to establish a Service provider connection to which the message will be forwarded. In this documentation, the HTTP server plays this role so install an HTTP server in the Ozeki SMS Gateway (Figure 1).
The next step is to create an SMTP User to receive emails from Thunderbird. Open the Apps menu, the left side panel contains the already installed users and applications. The right side panel contains the users and applications you can install with a brief description next to them. Search the SMTP User and click the blue 'install' button next to it (Figure 2).
Clicking the Install link will bring up the SMTP User installation panel. Here, you need to enter a unique username in the Username field and a password in the Password filed (Figure 3).
Now create a POP3 User to send emails to the Thunderbird. Open the Apps menu, the left side panel contains the already installed users and applications. The right side panel contains the users and applications you can install with a brief description next to them. Search the POP3 User and click the blue 'install' button next to it (Figure 4).
Clicking the Install link will bring up the POP3 User installation panel. Here, you need to enter a unique username in the Username field and a password in the Password filed (Figure 5).
Then you must then enable authentication on the SMTP server. To do this, open the SMTP server details page in the advanced menu as the Figure 6 shows.
On the SMTP server Details page, select the Configure tab and enable 'Require SMTP authentication' in the User Authentication section as you can see in the Figure 7.
Now download the latest version of Thunderbird from thunderbird.net (Figure 8).
Open the installer and click the 'Next' button on the Welcome page to begin the installation (Figure 9).
Select the installation location and start the installation by clicking the Install button (Figure 10).
When the installation is complete, click Finish button and Thunderbird will start as the Figure 11 shows.
Now you need to create a new email account in Thunderbird. Select New section in the Menu and then the Existing Mail Account option (Figure 12).
Then enter your name and email address and then the password you used for SMTP User. In the Advanced configure section. Enter the IP address of the SMS Gateway on the server and the default POP3 and SMTP ports on the port, which are 110 and 25. Finally, for SMTP, select Normal Password for Authentication. Username should be SMTP and POP3 user names (Figure 13).
The next step is to send a message from Thunderbird to the SMS Gateway. To do this, select the Write menu. You can enter the recipient in the form phone number@domain where the phone number is the recipient's phone number and the domain is the SMS Gateway domain name. Both the subject and the body part will be sent in the SMS (Figure 14).
You will see that both parts of the message appear on the HTTP server as the Figure 15 shows.
In order to receive a message on the POP3 user, the routing table must be set to forward incoming messages here. Open the routing menu and for the TO connection, select the POP3 user (Figure 16).
Now send a message back from the HTTP server to the SMS Gateway.
Finally, if you press the Get Messages button in Thunderbird you will see that the message arrives in your inbox as you can see in the Figure 18.
