    I have found the HS4 texting through email to be very reliable. I use it often, and never had an issue. The text is received within seconds.

      I am attempting to setup eMail functionality in HomeSeer with a non-GMail account and can not seem to get it to work as it should. The mail account is good because I can log into it and send and receive messages. In HomeSeer, the POP side seems to work fine because the log will indicate how many emails it found. The SMTP side however, gives and error "Exception sending email via smtp.ionos.com (To:ts@XXXX.com, cc:ts@XXXX.com, bcc:ts@XXXX.com, Sub:ts@XXXX.com, Attach = Authentication failed, see inner exception.". I am using the correct password and the account requires SSL Authentication. I am attaching images of my setup attempt (3) for each section.. Thanks in advance for any help.

        I am sorry to have bothered the group... I made a stupid mistake and put an incorrect PORT number in for the SMTP server. Once I put the correct on in place and tested it, everything worked as it should.

          Try smtp port 465. Also can you check to see if there are any smtp settings in their email system?

              Verizon: @vtext.com (or @vzwpix.com for photos and video)
              Sprint: @messaging.sprintpcs.com
              T-Mobile: @tmomail.net
              Google Fi: @msg.fi.google.com

              I just used this to test and works great...
              I had to play around with it to get email AND txt going... apparently you cannot have a space in it.

              so example...

              myemail@gmail.com;32323232323@text.att.net

              needed that semi colon and no spaces... works..
              thx

                  You should use Pushover. Much more reliable than text messages...

                      Its in the updater (search for Pushover).

                      Then replace the exe in the Homeseer root with this one: https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/ho...32#post1435192

                      You will need to install pushover on your phones (in the respective stores - small $)

                        Hello

                        You can also use McsMqtt, Nodered and Pushbullet

                          The easiest and quickest solution is Twilio. It is stable, I have never seen it go down, and you will get your message in seconds. Search the HomeSeer plugin store - the plugin is free.

                            FWIW, and even though I had posted earlier how to send MMS via HS, I have to agree with jon00.

                            I control my notifications setup via HSTouch and can cycle through none, MMS, Pushover, or both MMS & Pushover for any number of notifications.

                            When I choose both, the Pushover notifications are received immediately - every time. The same MMS notification, sent at the same time may arrive right away, but sometimes it could show up an hour later.

                            I'm pretty sure MMS is sometimes routed from FL to NJ to the Moon to Peewee Herman's house before hitting my phones.

                            Pushover just works!
