Currently Being ModeratedMay 17, 2010 11:00 AM (in response to 4request)If you mean you want to receive your e-mail messages on your cellphone as text messages, it should be possible to do this, but remember that an SMS text message is limited to 160 characters.
Each cellular carrier maintains its own "mail to SMS gateway" - for example, the ATT gateway address is number@txt.ATT.net.
For other carriers, see
So if your cell carrier is ATT Wireless and your cell number is 987-654-3210, you would set up the e-mail forwarding address as 9876543210@txt.ATT.net.
With regard to automatic forwarding of incoming e-mails, I don't normally use Mail.app, but its help section contains the following:
To automatically forward messages:
Choose Mail > Preferences, and then click Rules.
Click Add Rule and type a descriptive name for the rule.
Set the conditions necessary for the rule to apply to a message.
Choose Forward Message from the “Perform the following actions” pop-up menu.
Enter the email address where you want the messages forwarded.
Click Message and enter the text you want to appear, along with the text of the original message, in the forwarded message.
