Active Messenger: forwards the email you get to the many channels you have in an intelligent way.
Stefan Marti, Chris Schmandt

Active Messenger allows to forward incoming text messages to the available portable and stationary devices like text and voice pagers, cellular phones etc., possibly to several devices in turn, monitoring the reactions of the user and the success of the delivery.
