this is not a guaranteed service, nor does it have an official SLA,
and inbound mail/connections from louder speakers are often just
dropped, either at the TCP layer, or at the application layer (even
after what seems like a completed SMTP conversation.)
If you depend upon SMS for things, smtp -> sms gateways at the
provider aren't reliable enough.
