Many times it can be convenient to have LabVIEW send a text message. Unfortunately, LabVIEW is not a cell phone, however, it can use free services (*text messaging fees may apply) provided by phone service providers to send an email which is then transformed into a text message. In the example below, the "Send SMS example.vi" calls the "Send SMS.vi" to send a text message using SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). Note that in the example the smtp server that is used is GMail's; you will need a gmail account to send the email. It is possible to change the SMTP server by simply modifying the appropriate control.
