Send SMS from Outlook 2007

The Outlook Mobile Service (OMS) was introduced in Outlook 2007 to allow you to send and receive text messages in Outlook. It also enables you to configure mobile notifications to have important messages, calendar summaries, and reminders forwarded to your mobile phone as text messages. The OMS features depend on hosting providers which provide the connection between Outlook and your mobile phone.

Until now, few users in North America were able to use these features because only a few wireless service providers were supported by SMSLink, the only hosting provider available in North America when Outlook 2007 was released. With the recent introduction of SMSOfficer, a new OMS hosting provider, you can send and receive text messages in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 regardless of which wireless service provider you use.

Outlook 2007: Giving you the HTML Signature…

Missing your HTML signatures or showing off the flashy feedburner signature in Outlook 2007? Well, look no further. It’s been months since I have been using Outlook 2007 and no matter whatever options I tried, it just didn’t work! Douglas raised the flag earlier in this post and since then I have been looking around on and off till I discovered this solution:

You just need to edit the HTML signature file at

C:\Documents & settings\user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures

Create a HTML file and add your Feed burner script.


NOTE: If your files are hidden, you will not see Application Data. Unhide the files and folders to see this.
