The Messaging Module allows you to send and receive all kinds of messages - SMS, email, and inter-user messages (called OMail). It also helps users handle various ancillary aspects of messaging, including managing addresses and browsing past conversations. Lastly, it has an easy-to-use API that other modules can use to incorporate messaging into their own projects.

The Messaging Module was created by Unlicensed user and Unlicensed userDieterich Lawson and Jeremy Keiper, and it will be used for projects in Kenya and several other countries in the near future.
