Sending an eMail thru a SMS-to-eMail gateway can be done in two ways (at
least in Denmark): Either by choosing the type eMail and and supplying
eMail-address and phone-no for the SMS-to-eMail gateway or by prepending
a Text-type message with the eMail address, seperating from the rest of
the message with a space, and sending it to the SMS-to-eMail gateway
