Ufone offers email address (email@example.com
) to its users and email sent to this address is delivered as an SMS.
When this address is set as a “forward-to” address (e.g in Gmail or other free email services), no email is delivered to it as somehow forwarding to this address is not possible, at least for me. I am trying since couple of years to get email delivered to it.
Any help in enabling this forwarding or suggesting an email service which can forward (or exploit email rules/filters) to ufone’s email address will be highly appreciated.
ufone accepts only emails that arrive on your firstname.lastname@example.org with your ufone email addres in only [to] address field.
means it specifically should be your email@example.com in [to] address field. other wise ufone marks it as spam and do not forward to your mobile phone as an sms.
as I could understand you also know the fact your email address doesn’t go within [to] address field when forwarded from Gmail to ufone. instead it goes with in [forward-to] field. so that is gonna be accepted for you at ufone.
when Gmail forwards an email to any other email address that arrives at Gmail. that email, through out, actually contains the same Gmail address in [to] field which was the [to] address where the email initially was sent on. this happens with any email service. and they do not let you customize this.
[to] field always contains the initial to-address where ever it is forwarded and when ever it is forwarded.
however you can set these parameters by your self if you are the service provider. means you own or manage the email host.
and one very simple and short trick is that. if you are a programmer. you write a code/service as an email client that interacts with your Gmail account (or any other which allows interaction with any clients) and that has to be scheduled on a predefined frequency(every 1 minute, every 1 hour, or every day, etc… what suites you) to be executed. just fetch emails from your Gmail account and send them to your ufone email account (that is not forward actually) you send these emails specifying your ufone email address in [to] address field.
ufone also doesn’t give email accounts to all its members. either you are registered or not. just talk to ufone helpline. most of the guys there will not be able to even understand what are you talking about. means they will not tell you or may be they even dont know this service exists or not… AFAIK
