Talk2M Mail and SMS relay

From $1

Table of contents

 

The Talk2M eMail/SMS relay helps you send e-mail and SMS text messages from any eWON connected to Talk2M. 

The eMail and text message (SMS) relay function using Talk2M is supported by an eWON TV Hands-on video (VID-009). Additional features are adressed in this WIKI page. A table with links to all relevant documents is located at the bottom of the present page.

Benefits: 

  • It is not necessary to know the SMTP-server of the local Internet connection which enables you to use the same settings in all your eWONs.
  • No need to have an eWON with wireless modem to send out text messages (SMS) 
  • For eWONs having a wireless modem, the action of sending out an SMS does not interrupt the Internet connection.

Refer to following document for configuration explications:

Please note that your eWON must run firmware 6.4s3 in order to use the relay.
The relay function is available to all Talk2M accounts.  

Do I need to establish a Talk2M VPN connection to use the Mail and SMS Relay?
No. It it is also possible to use the Mail & SMS relay server without establishing a VPN connection to the Talk2M server.

However, if your eWON allows VPN connection, we recommend to use a Talk2M connection to send out emails and SMS. Using a Talk2M connection will have several benefits like:
    - allows sending emails and SMS through a Proxy server
    - no risk that the access to the SMTP server is blocked by the local Internet connection
    - greater security due to the VPN encryption
