Screenshots of Outlook SMS add-in:
I was able to successfully send SMS messages from Outlook but it initially it refused to detect my Nokia 6630′s modem. But after trying for two or three times it detected the phone and I was able to send SMS message. I could not try this with Outlook 2003, if any of you try then let me know your feedback.
