macosmicrosoft-outlooksms

is there a way to send SMS from Outlook 2016 for Mac (my company is using O365)?

I know it is possible in the Windows version of Outlook (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Send-and-receive-text-messages-SMS-8a8c38d5-a197-4df7-929b-08c5e259a0ca, how about Mac

  • There are some commercial services like Red Oxygen with a 15 day trial for testing, which works from inside Outlook.

    Another commercial approach is aspsms which does Email to SMS from inside Outlook.

    A possibly free solution (untested by me) might be to install Microsoft's Skype for Outlook.com. One can send an SMS from Skype, but I do not know how well this works from Outlook.
