Contact group details

The Email Alias field forms the email address of the contact group in VMR.

In our example, let us assume that we have the following settings:

  • A contact group with email alias as “alertgroup”
  • VMR’s accepted smtp domain: fluidsms.com”
  • VMR’s email to SMS feature is active

Any emails sent to VMR with recipient as alertgroup@fluidsms.com will be converted to SMS to all members of this contact group.
