  1. Maybe you can help me out. I’ve been enjoying this feature quite a lot. At first, Outlook 2010 would nag me to set up a text messaging account when I tried to either reply to or create a new message from Outlook. Until I tried doing the same in OWA, I actually thought I had to pay for this service. However, OWA actually lets me select “New Text Message” and finds the contact’s cell number, and even Outlook 2007 lets me reply without issue.

    At some point, Outlook 2010 (beta) stopped doing this as well, and I could send/receive texts, from Outlook, through my phone, to my heart’s content.

    This weekend, I did a hard reset on my phone and had to re-setup my ActiveSync account. Since then, I get following wizard in Outlook 2010 (OWA and Outlook 2007 can still send just fine):

    “Configure a Text Message (SMS) Account:

    Of course, following this wizard leads you to a variety of pay services, which is bullsh*t since I KNOW this works with standard Exch2010 functionality.

    Any advice?

  2. I had the very same problem, after a hard reset I could not send any SMS text messages from within Outlook 2010 and yes you don’t have to use a pay service if you use Microsoft Exchange 2010.

    Make sure you’re outlook is connected to Microsoft Exchange 2010.
    Setup a sync partnership in WIndows Mobile Device Center.
    Then folow the steps in this blog post, after changing the “SMS Text messages” setting of Microsoft Active Sync on you’re mobile phone, you should be able to send SMS text messages from within Microsoft Outlook 2010, with you’re Mobile phone.
