Send Email as a Text Message (Carrier Specific)

Use Case: You need to contact all your staff to notify them that the office is closed due to weather conditions, email isn't direct enough, and calling everyone takes too long.  Why not mass text everyone at once?  If you create an email group, using a phone number and their carrier, you can reach all your staff in one message.  When you go to send a message to your group, don't include a subject, and keep the message very short, say 150 characters, be sure to remove a signature or any graphics that you normally include on an email message.  Send email message to- TXT@yourdomain.com.  
Within that group name you will have a listing of numbers like this example: 1112223333@txt.att.net.  
(Of course an alternate to this is to create a group of numbers on your smart phone directly, the downside to this is that if you switch carriers, or device types, Android to iOS for example, you may lose that list.  Creating an email group on your server ensures that not only you are able to send to the group.)
