You can also select a ‘No SMS gate’ option in case you do not plan to use sms for your service, or plan to set it up later.

Please be advised that you have to specify a user and its password that used to send mails(aka login and password).

Enter pair admin/admin into the web form and submit it. Enjoy!
Notes about using SMS gates Nexmo and Twilio
For processing incoming short messages you need to specify a callback URL to provider.
For Twilio you can add URL using web interface and for Nexmo it is possible to add only using API. For more info about Nexmo refer to this page. Regarding the use of Twilio API to set up a callback URL refer to this page or just add it directly through web-interface when you logged in.
Notes about mail providers
Yahoo, Outlook, Gmail, AOL do not permit to send mails using SMTP protocols. By default it is permitted to send mails only using web interface. You should log into web interface and permit to use SMTP to send emails. This actions may vary from one provider to another. You can find solutions at corresponding website in support articles.
