What is the difference between Email based SMS and SMS?

Email based SMS converts Emails into SMS messages. For example, OpManager sends an email to your SMS service provider ( They will convert your Email alert into an SMS compatible format and will push the notification to your intended recipient. This is not the case with SMS as there is no conversion involved and the alert is directly pushed as a text message.

Note: To use these notification profiles, the Mail Server settings and the SMS server settings must be configured.
