How to use email to send text messages

As you probably know, text messages can be sent and received by email. It can be done online using GMail, Yahoo, Hotmail and so on. Or you can use your favorite email client like MS Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.

How to do it? First, you need to know an email to SMS gateway of your recipient's mobile provider. This is a usual email address like

##########@vtext.com

Where ########## is your recipient's phone number without the country code. When you send email to this address, your friend will receive it as text message on his phone or other mobile device. He can even reply!

So what's the catch? Mobile carriers keep their gateways as a closely guarded secret, because the process is free and they do not want to lose money on texting plans.

Until recently there was a Wikipedia page with the list, but it was deleted. It was often incorrect or out of date.

So I decided to do my own research. Here is what I found:
