An Contact or Group alias is used as the email address when sending Email2SMS. An Alias is a short name for a Contact or Group.

An Alias should be unique. A Contact cannot share the same alias as another Contact or Group.

Before you send Email2SMS you should make yourself familiar with what addresses you can use:

  • An Alias may contain any number or letter. Spaces or special characters such as ':', '@', '#' etc are not allowed
  • An alias is not case sensitive (e.g 'eric' is the same as 'Eric', 'ERIC' and 'eriC')
