RE: how to send a sms with redhat

Right, but you can send those email alerts straight to a phone via SMS.  We use mailman to send to all the admins.

Well we have two scenarios here:
We have email alerts during the work hours and then we have SMS sent to the operators during not work hours.

We went for the GSM phone cause it was faster to set it up, our monitoring system is running in the same machine where the phone is plugged to, so sending the SMS is pretty easy this way.
