The text messages are an ideal tool to carry out marketing campaigns. One of the main advantages are the varied formats and platforms you can use to send the messages. For example, it’s possible to send SMS via email. LabsMobile has an API to send emails that turn into SMS.

During the process of integration of the MailSMS API, you’ll go through a tag test for emails. These are simulated sendinds that will NOT be sent to the mobile phone stated and are useful to carry out some tests without paying for them. The test emails will not have ACKs and can be seen in the WebSMS app in the Search module.
