I would like to set up a simple and inexpensive SMS to mail gateway. I have a Nokia cell phone which I can connect to a pc with a USB cable. I would like a software which monitors the phone and, when a SMS arrives, forwards it to a mail address.
Can anyone suggest something free or open source, in Windows, which can do this?
I would prefer a solution which doesn't require me to send e-mail directly from the phone, because this would require outgoing traffic from the phone, which would be billed by the phone company. However this could be an acceptable solution, since I don't think I will receive many SMS messages.
I work in my city's local government, and I have to set up a way for the citizens who don't have a PC, but have a cell phone, to open trouble-tickets. I would like to set up a number where they can send an SMS which is then converted to a mail for our support team. Since this is experimental, I would prefer a solution which doesn't require a paid service or a contract with a phone company.
