What do I need to make this service work for me?
Web access, an email account, a mobile phone and a TraiTel account - that's it!
What type of email accounts can I use with TraiTel's SMS alert service?
You can use POP3 which is the most popular and the one typically used with email clients like OutlookTM. You can also use IMAP which is more advanced than POP3 and used frequently with web based email offerings such as (AOLTM, YahooTM, GMailTM, etc) OR you can use an email address we give you such as mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org to send all your important emails to.
The emails sent to your ttalerts.com email address, will (in addition to being sent as an SMS) be forwarded to the email address you specify during sign up so that you also receive the original email to your inbox.
For added security you can use SSL encrypted authentication or if that is not possible, standard authentication is available also.
What defines an "alert" from emails that I don't wish to receive on my phone?
The email alert service allows you to define sets of rules that apply to the emails you receive. The rules allow you to specify exactly what emails you wish to receive as an alert, by filtering out the sender, the subject or by combining both. You can even specify what days and hours of the day you are happy to be alerted on your phone!
After you define what emails you wish to receive as an alert, you can then proceed to choose exactly what content you want to have sent to your phone. Emails are generally long and contain information that is irrelevant, text messages (SMS) on the other hand are best kept short.
A stock or auction notification will often contain disclaimers and other information that you don't want, but by using the filters provided you can get rid of all that information and receive on your phone exactly what you do want.
Am I contracting myself to TraiTel by opening up an online account?
As with the email alert service and every other service that TraiTel offers, there are no contracts, no set up fees, no commitments or minimum usage requirements to worry about. You simply create an account online, test the service with the free SMS (text messages) provided and continue past the free trial by adding enough funds into the account to cover the traffic or usage levels that you expect. Deposited funds do not expire either.
How reliable is your service and can I count on the SMS alerts to arrive to my phone?
TraiTel has been offering SMS solutions to corporate and SMEs for over 7 years now. We have built an extensive self-healing network that spans the globe. If anything is to ever go wrong at any of our POPs the network automatically recognises this and routes all data to the POPs that are 100% accessible.
