    You need to know the recipient phone's carrier.

     

    If you were texting AT&T phones:

    SMS / Text - 10digitphonenumber@txt.att.net

     

    MMS (picture/video msg) - 10digitphonenumber@mms.att.net

    Wilcre had a post about the many other carriers' email addresses.

     

    Another way (the way I usually do it)...

     

    I add cell phone numbers into my AIM buddy list and then just IM my friends' phones from AIM Express. This way you can keep a threaded conversation going without bothering with email, which oftentimes truncates messages.
