Can not send email to SMS any longer


I figure I would check here first. Some time ago, Dreamhost put anti-spam procedures into place so that shell scripts needed to use a real, fully-hosted return address to send anything out. I did that.

For months, I have been able to send email from form submissions and shell scripts. It still works, with one exception.

When sending some emails, I like to send myself an SMS using ATT’s email to SMS gateway which is It has worked for years, but now none of my scripts are generating an SMS.

I went to my gmail account and sent an email directly to SMS. That went through fine. I think it’s likely that ATT has put some type of filtering on it.

Does anyone else have this problem or a solution?




Yes, but not SMS specifically.


I am having this exact same issue email to SMS using <phone#> and <phone#> stopped working immediately following the upgrade that DreamHost did mid-April. This was working prior to the upgrade. all other emails work, however some recipient email ISPs such as AOL and Outlook now seem to be blocking emails from the new server. How have other customers addressed this issue?
