Once you have been advised that your multiTXT account has been set up, you can send a text message by following these three steps:
- Open your University of Otago email (e.g. Outlook, Apple Mail).
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org You can include a subject line if you like.
- 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.
