Does anyone have console set up to send SMS messages on certain critical events? When I try to add the email address for sending a text to my phone (which would be xxxxxxx@txt.att.net) I get an error message that it is not a valid email address. I can send directly from my outlook application and receive the SMS just fine. So it appears that something in Console wont accept that address. Anyone seen this before?

Is the message „unable to send mail, invalid addresses“.

I've run into this a week ago - the problem was that the mail server was set to only allow a internal mail address for the Netsight mail account.
So you might want to check the settings on the mail server for the Netsight account.

Generally when we send messages to an SMS Gateway, we use 10#@mms.att.net, not txt, this way you can create a contact on iphone and they all lump together nicely. Never had any issues with it.

I agree, checking mail server settings in the options, and the mail server itself..
