Once you have been advised that your multiTXT account has been set up, you can send a text message by following these three steps:

  1. Open your University of Otago email (e.g. Outlook, Apple Mail)
  2. Type the mobile number into the TO: field of a new email message, followed by "@mtxt.co.nz". For example, to send a text message to the mobile number 0211234567 using multiTXT, you would address it to 0211234567@mtxt.co.nz You can include a subject line if you like
  3. Type your text message and press Send

Note that the standard 160 character limit for text messages applies to multiTXT email to text messages as well. If you have a default email signature, this will be included in your text message.
