    You could set up SNDDST 
    or
    Our company uses MMAIL

    go to  Giovanni B. Perotti.  Easy400.net site
    http://www.easy400.net/
    see 
    http://mmail.easy400.net/

    Use the   EMLMSG   program

    ChgVar     &ToAddr  ('##########@vtext.com')               /* replace ###'s with phone */
    ChgVar     &ToName  ('IT Director')                        
    ChgVar     &ToAddr2 ('##########@vtext.com')               
    ChgVar     &ToName2 ('You gotta Problem')                    
    EMLMSG SUBJECT(&SUBJECT) FROMNAME(&SNDR) +                 
            FROMADDR(&SNDREMAIL) +                             
            TO(&ToAddr/&TONAME/*TO +                           
                   &ToAddr2/&ToName2/*TO) +                        
            TXTF(&LIB/QRPGLESRC) TXTMBR(&TXTMBR) EDTMBR(*NO)  

    You could read his code and develop your own if you want to reinvent.

    I think Poojaary asked about sending SMS not about sending EMAIL.

    Right. The question is about sending SMS using AS400.

    We use IBM's SNDDST to send text messages.  No need to buy anything.  In fact, we coded several SNDDST messages into iSeries Navigator to notify when certain events occur.  Works nicely.

    Try this command:
    SNDDST TYPE(*LMSG) TOINTNET(('2125551212@vtext.com' *PRI)) DSTD('DASD storage limit') LONGMSG('DASD at serious or critical level on &ENDPOINT at &DATE &TIME') SUBJECT('DASD Stg')            
    The &xxx variables are filled in by iNav.
    We aware that each carrier has their own domain.  For example, AT&T is xxx@txt.att.net.

    SNDDST can be tested from an IBM i command line.  Just send yourself a message at 999999@yourcarrier.com where 999999 is your cell phone number and your carrier is from ToddN's list.
