  1. EPIC!!! Finally something that is actually working!!! Once set up properly it can sent SMS automatically!!!

  2. There is no audio in the youtube video above.

    1. Hey there, there isnt supposed to be! Its just a quick walkthrough of the extension itself.

  3. You should mention that one has to sign up for a cloudHQ account and setup at least one service. I did not want any of the services other than the ability to send an SMS message (because I do not have nay other cloud accounts).

    1. Hey Lewis! We have our users set up an account to make it easier to solve any issues they have/billing/etc. Thanks for your interest!

  4. Do recipients get it as personal message or do they see the whole list of ppl it was sent to? Thanks

    1. Yes, they get to see a copy of the email, but it will not be with others details unless you dont BCC.

    2. So its as if you send a blind copy ? ie — other ppl details are not exposed ? thanks

  5. If the text msg contains text only, does the recipient have to click on the link in the SMS to read the content (as per the demo) or is the link only created when the msg contains an image?

    1. They will click on the link to read the email, whether there are attachments (like images) or not.

  6. Great for important email blasts/to send to those that arent responsive
