With Microsoft Outlook 2010, you can stay connected beyond just e-mail messages. Sending & receiving text messages (SMS) in Outlook 2010 is a convenient way to send a quick note, reminder, or forwarding your upcoming schedule or important e-mail messages directly to mobile device as a text message. “Getting Started: There’re two ways to set up text messaging: Easiest way is with Windows phone running 6.1 with an update or 6.5, and connected to Exchange Server 2010 account. With this setup, your SMSs are synchronized from Outlook to mobile device for sending. As an added bonus, messages that you receive are synchronized back to Outlook for easy reading in your Inbox. Another way is signing up a 3rd-party service that sends SMS on your behalf, on a nominal fee for message delivery. Although the use of 3rd-party messaging service requires more initial setup, after connected, you can then send texts from convenience of your computer. No longer will you be hunched over a tiny phone trying to add all of those addresses from your phone book just to say “Be there in 10.””
