I've been using e-mail to test for sometime, but I noticed today that it stopped working. I get bounce backs on my e-mail.
I'm using firstname.lastname@example.org (xxxxxxxxxx=10-digit phone#).
A year or 2 ago I used email@example.com, but it seems to no longer work properly, so switched to the sms.rogers address and has been working great.
OK, tried firstname.lastname@example.org and it does work, but much slower (1-2 minutes) than the sms.rogers.com was.
I found this link that says to use email@example.com
I've done more testing and concluded that a e-mail sent to the pcs.roger address taked anywhere from 2 to 60 minutes to reach the phone.
A message sent to sms.rogers arrives on the phone in about 5-15 seconds, but not every message arrives.
The sms.rogers was reliable for the last year or more, but something has changed. i've tried it from multiple e-mail accounts from multiple computers/devices.
I have resorted to sending all messages to both addresses. When sms.rogers works, I get it right away and the pcs.rogers maessage arrives sometime later. If the sms.rogers doesn't work, at least I get the pcs.rogers at some later time (better late than never).
I apologize for the delayed response here, but I wanted to know more about this situation.
First of all, thank you so much for your feedback @Victoria_guy!
We did transfer over to the firstname.lastname@example.org, which works better, since there is no need to reply with “Read” to get the messages.
What are the issues you are experiencing @jason1234?
I hope you were able to resolve them since you last posted.
Could you show us an example of the bounce back you got?
We would like to assist you further, as we are aware that it is not a widely used service.
Email to SMS gateway (sms.rogers.com)
Question, I have been using the sms gateway for the last year or so to get alerts from our Nagios system.
Recently (the last week), this has completley stopped working for us -- our company's mailserver is now always getting a timeout when trying to send mail to sms.rogers.com (which looks like a firewall rule).
Is there any recourse? Your level 1 and level 2 guys swear up and down that you don't block things at that gateway, and so because it's working from elsewhere, it has to be working.
(Spoiler: It's not working).
