Configuration notes:
If you wish to send a text message to an e-mail address and not, as would ordinarily be the case, to another mobile phone user, the text message starts with the recipient's e-mail address, following by the actual text.
Since the configuration tool does not support the use of the special character "@" in the e-mail address, this has to be replaced by "*".
