I'm unaware of any up-to-date SMTP modules for Apache.  That's not saying it cannot be done,
but I think most people using SMTP will set up a separate SMTP server (e.g. Postfix or Exim).
 You'd get more mileage out of a separate software service than you would reinventing the
wheel.  I do not know of any open-source SMS service handler that doesn't require an SMS service
gateway or cellular service of some sort, so you may not find what you are looking for in
that regard.  Hope you find what you are looking for!
