"Hi Joellen, the other way I've done this is to have incoming texts forwarded to a twittermail account.  This will work if you have email/internet access with FLSMS:  http://mashable.com/2007/06/27/twittermail/"

PING: Simple keyword to check if FLSMS is working

I have a number of installations of FLSMS running in my Lab at the University of Alberta and I often need to check to make sure they are operational.  (The problem is rarely with FLSMS and more often with Windows crashing) I've created a simple keyword method for checking the status of FrontlineSMS without the need to go to my Lab (especially useful late at night or on weekends).  I create a keyword called PING that sends an autoreply to my phone indicating that FLSMS is working.  The reply…See More

attempting to set up email forwarding

I am attempting to set up email forwarding and running into problems. I've set up a gmail account and entered info into frontline but keep getting a message saying it can't reach the server.

Attempts with keyword forwarding result in "failed" attempts to send to email.

The laptop is connected to the Internet. Scratching my head trying to figure out what I'm overlooking here...
