Selective Forwarding | SMS Forwarding

Does anybody know a way to create a rule in Gmail to forward emails from a specific contact or email address?

If so, is there a way to forward to SMS?

I've tried playing around with the filtering but this needs a global forwarding address?

There are several services available online that will convert e-mails to SMS (usually for a small fee).

Gmail allows you to add a forwarding address, as long as you can verify that you own the account by clicking the link in the verification mail. Once added, you can create a filter that will forward only selected e-mails, such as only e-mails coming from a specific address.

Setup a filter that is from:sender's@domain.com that forwards to an address you've added in. Almost every phone carrier offers a free email → SMS converting with your plan.

  • T-Mobile: phonenumber@tmomail.net
  • Virgin Mobile: phonenumber@vmobl.com
  • Cingular: phonenumber@cingularme.com
  • Sprint: phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
  • Verizon: phonenumber@vzwpix.com
  • Nextel: phonenumber@messaging.nextel.com

Where phonenumber = your 10 digit phone number.

SMS Address Source.
