    Anthony,

    Our assumption has been that most pager systems or phone systems have
    gateways from email and that a variation of using the email delivery method
    would actually be gatewayed to a handheld device.

    If this assumption is wrong and we need an explicit delivery method for SMS,
    we need somebody familiar with that technology to propose a solution. Are yu
    game for that?

    Carl-Uno
