We've implemented SMS notification via the sieve "notify" extension. We had
to get a few changes done to the cyrus side of things (specifically the
$text$ substitution variable), which I know are definitely in the 2.3 CVS
branch, but might be in 2.2 as well (Ken?).
We then wrote our own notification daemon in perl to take the message and
send it via an SMS gateway (after appropriate rate and billing checks for
the user). A bit of custom work, but it all seems to work pretty well.
