Has anyone tried to use ReportCaster to send text messages? I can initiate the message using the carrier's email format such as email@example.com in which the carrier converts the email to SMS format and forwards to the recipient's mobile phone, however, the recieved message is html code, rather than the actual message.
Any suggestions?This message has been edited. Last edited by: <Kathryn Henning>,
What would be the content of the message? A report? Try changing the output type to alpha and make sure it is inline rather than an attachment.

Thank you very much for your posts prodrigu and gregv.
I had just received a new requirement, within the last couple of days, to send out alerts/reports, and didn't know about the EDAMAIL application tool.
I see it now, in the 'Developing Reporting Applications' manual bigger than life.
From my research, it looks like EDAMAIL was a new feature in one of the 7.x releases.
This example, is working fine for me:
APP PREPENDPATH IBISAMP
TABLE FILE EMPLOYEE
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOPAGE
ON TABLE HOLD AS MYFILE FORMAT HTML
-MRNOEDIT EX EDAMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com , Test Report , , HTML , MYFILE
Thank you, again.
