How to send SMS thru Outlook 2010

         In Outlook 2010, users have the ability to setup an SMS account that allows you to send and receive text messages using Outlook’s familiar email interface. Before you can send a text message you have to create an account with one of the SMS providers. You then use the account information and add it to Outlook so that it can send/receive SMS messages via the service.
