Is there a add-on that I can install into Thunderbird in order to send SMS from my email?

Would love to have an add-on where I can just type the cellphone number, rather than having to look up the cellphone carrier and type in the whole thing, like 9735551212@txt.att.net or 9735551212@vtext.com, etc etc..

Anyone?

[quote="tanstaafl"]See https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/904 and https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/6617

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_gateway mentions a lot of email to SMS gateways provided by mobile phone carriers.[/quote]


Thanks! The 904 addon would be great, but it seems it is only working with older Thunderbird versions?

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Updating_extensions for how to workaround the version check, or disable it for all extensions. Most extensions that support 1.5 or later will work if you do that.
