to be clear, this is not how works

You send an email to there SMTP server, something like, 
0712341234 at
where the number is the number you are texting, your login to the smtp 
server is your permission, costing, and you don't need to know anything 
about the carrier.

My point is clearly there are different ways to acheive the same thing...

I use the above solution in the UK, maybe other locations vary.
