The amount of people using text messages had risen exponentially since the time we started using mobile phones. People receive several messages on a daily basis. These same people are relying more on SMS messages to communicate. Adding an email service to work with the text messaging service people are already used to using will be an easy transition.

MailBliss is especially useful for people who want to get updates about new emails, but do not have access to either a WiFi or a 3G network. Using this service they can get their emails as SMS updates instead.

Phone information

The next step in creating your new email address is entering your details about your phone. You will be asked for your phone number and which wireless carrier you use. The reason they need to know the carrier is, each carrier has an address for each phone used when sending a text message. The format of the address can vary per carrier.

Fortunately the service is not tied to the US alone and there are a lot of other countries where you can use MailBliss.
