Right.  That's what I want to avoid.  I want the sender to send an SMS
message, no set-up, no add-ons, no e-mail address, from any SMS-capable
phone, just like he'd send it to another SMS phone, and have the message end
up in a designated e-mail account on a designated server.

I see lots of stuff on their site about _sending_ mail _to_ phones, but
nothing about what I'm seeking ... what am I missing?
