Hello Dorothea,

Thank you for your message.

Regarding the Syslog Receiver sensor, I'm afraid that there is no option to send the messages as SMS. Currently, it is only possible to send them via email, by using the corresponding placeholders listed in this manual: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/list_of_placeholders_for_notifications#availableplaceholders

Thank you for your reply.

Regarding the other questions you have, if they are not related to the Syslog Receiver sensor I invite you to open an other post for them (if you haven't done it yet).
