You can add true two-way sms text messaging capability to your applications within about one hour. In short, you need to connect to our service using SMTP protocol, authenticate yourself and tell our service to send a text message to one or more international SMS numbers.
Our "60-minute-API" lets you do this quickly. Here is how.
The following tables provide details on how to integrate external applications to a running instance of WIS – in this case iPiPi.com – using SMTP protocol. The setup consists of two distinct parts:
Part 1 - Application Setup
You first need to connect to our SMTP server using your ipipi.com UserName and Password. This is done only once and you will need to write a few lines of code for your application. The code is the same as if you wanted to send email using SMTP protocol. Your SMTP server account will use the following details:
|SMTP server name||ipipi.com|
|User Name||Your ipipi.com user name (the same account you use to login to www.ipipi.com – for example jsmith)|
|Password||Your ipipi.com password (for the account you use to login to www.ipipi.com)|
|“Sent From” email addresses||
Your account name + @ipipi.com (for example firstname.lastname@example.org)
It is very important to set this field. Ipipi.com is NOT set up to receive relaying. If this value is incorrect, the following error message will be generated: “503 Incorrect Authentication for Specified Email Address”
Empty or use one or all of the compression options described below.
Following are examples of valid entries in the subject line:

|“Message”||Write the text of SMS message. Please observe the maximum available number of characters for your account (about 150)|
When the message is created, send it using the SMTP account as explained above. The message will come to ipipi.com server which will try to authenticate your account. If all is fine, a credit will be deducted from your account and your message will be converted into SMS and sent to the desired destination - ANYWHERE on the Planet.
