E-mail to Active Directory Distribution Group by Phone Numbers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In our company there are many employees with company-issued cell phones. As I understand, SMS messages can be sent to these phones through e-mail by e-mailing a carrier specific address.

    Is there an efficient way through Active Directory to create a distribution list that when e-mailed, sends a text message to all selected personnel?

    By efficient, I mean: is there a way to match existing user mobile numbers in Active Directory to an alternate e-mail address (as the earlier example) and create a distribution list from that pool?

    Thank you very much.
