    The program is set up to work by SMS'ing specific code to your phone.
    You can do that from a phone, or from a variety of pc programs that send sms.
    Most likely you can even use your normal email program to send your phone an SMS using the proper address. For example at&t phones: email to
    1234567890@txt.att.net where the first 10 digits are your phone number

    The Where's My Droid program is not set up to respond to emails to my knowledge and I don't see why you need that.
