Options

This menu option displays a window, which allows you to control your default SMS message preferences.

On the first tab screen (Delivery notifications) there are options for configuring your default settings for delivery notification. They are as follows:

  • Do not notify me at all
    This allows you to set that you do not wish to be notified at all about deliveries
  • Notify me on all deliveries: via E-mail or via SMS
    This allows you to set that you wish to be notified of both successful and failed message deliveries. You can also control the manner in which you will be notified about the successful delivery of a long message (an SMS which has been split into multiple parts). You can choose whether to be notified as each part (split of the SMS) is delivered or once the complete message (all the splits) have been delivered.
  • Notify me on failed deliveries: via E-mail or via SMS
    This allows you to set that you only wish to be notified about failed message deliveries.


On the next tab screen (Reminders), there are options for marking whether you would like to be reminded about your appointments and tasks via SMS (this is not available for Outlook Express).

If you check this option, you will be reminded by SMS whenever you make an appointment or task and set an Outlook reminder. You can also set-up whether to remind other attendees as a default.  All these defaults can be over-ridden on each individual appointment or task.

Finally, on the last tab screen (Sending), there is an area for setting the message sending defaults:

  • Reply Route: via E-mail or via Email and SMS
    This allows you to set whether you want the reply to your SMS message to be sent to your email only or to your email and to your mobile.
  • Signature
    This places a default signature of your choice into the SMS composition window.
  • CC E-mail
    When checked, this sends a copy of your SMS message to the intended recipient's e-mail address.
  • CC Mobile
    When checked, this sends an SMS with the subject of the E-mail and your name to the intended e-mail recipient's mobile phone.

Inbox Rules

This opens a window which allows you to define SMS rules. The SMS rules are triggered when e-mails arrive in your inbox. An SMS is then sent off using these rules. These rules are configurable and the SMS content can be defined (Sender, Subject etc.) and their length limited. For more detail on this click here.

Template Editor

This opens a window which allows you to create and edit SMS templates. Templates are useful for preparing SMSs which you standardly send out. Once a template has been created it can be used to compose a standardised SMS in minimal time.

Sync Reminders to Server

This opens a window which allows you to send all your task and appointment information to our remote server. You can specify the range of appointments that you want to send. Once the appointments have been sent to our server, reminder SMSs will be sent to you even if your computer is off.

Manual Security Init

This menu option should only be used when texSMS does not become automatically initialised. This is usually the case when a mail arrives from our server with the subject “Security Initialisation” and remains in the inbox. If this mail arrives and is not automatically detected by texSMS, you will need to use the manual security initialiser.

By clicking on this option a window will pop up which allows you to paste the content of the initialisation mail into it. Once you have done this click ‘Ok’ and texSMS should now be ready for use.
