I have to check if my phone comapny provides that service. It seems
they have a web plateform though.

But Murphy's law being in the middle, that's precisely when my system
will try to send me an alarm message that the SMS email gateway or the
SMS web gateway of the phone company will be down.

Yes, but that would be the fun part of it, wouldn't it?
