Thumbs up SMS from Excel using VBA


I need to send SMS messages from Excel to some Civil Service managers mobile phones using VBA (via Outlook) but without a money subscription to a SMS gateway because of the paperwork involved to get clearance from my employer. Is there a Free SM service and VBA code that could send that service SMS messages ? [All solutions must be legal etc]
{Lovation London England.}

Thanks.

You can get controls that allow you to send SMS messages, by dialing up your local provider (O2, orange) directly. The charge for sending the SMS is then charged to your telephone bill. There is no such thing as a free SMS service . We use this one, its not brilliant, but works 95% of the time. Its more VB, then VBA, but you should be able to do something like output the number and message to a text file (via VBA), and then periodicly run an application that looks in the text files and sends the messages. Ive seen a few large companies use this type of method.
