What is "Text Message E-mail Address?"

Many mobile phone carriers allow you to send text messages to a mobile phone via an e-mail address. This is how CoConstruct sends text message notifications for builders and trade partners.

Here is an up-to-date (as best as we know) list of how to format the text message e-mail address for a number of carriers:


US and Canada

For other carriers in Australia, because the senders of text messages pay for the messages (rather than the recipients, like in the US, Canada, and some other countries), you need an intermediary service to deliver the text messages for you.

Because the way CoConstruct's text messages are sent from our system via email, most of these intermediary services in Australia are unable to be configured to accept our text message emails.

We do offer an optional add-on text messaging service for Australian customers. Contact Support to learn more about that service.
