so you've inspected the packets leaving your machine both times and found them identical? The packets sent from the exchange server to the SMS gateway are identical?
Then the only conclusion is that the SMS gateway provider is spying on you and drops messages when you send them from Linux.
Sorry, I keep being rude but you keep not actually trying to troubleshoot anything at all. "It works on Windows" is not troubleshooting.

+1, the comparison i would like to see is:
  • using powershell, email an @aol, @yahoo, @gmail, ... mailbox and make note of who the recipient indicates is the sender.
  • using bash, email an @aol, @yahoo, @gmail, ... mailbox and make note of who the recipient indicates is the sender.
  • compare whether the two received emails are from the same expected sender ?

i remember years ago i was setting up a bugzilla installation. my company was based in boston but they had teams in europe and asia. everyone within the company would get emails when the status of their defects changed but for everyone else it would be blocked.

so i set up a cron at midnite so that the hostname of the server would change to doble.com; service smtpd restart; send out anything queued up for people outside the company; then change the hostname back to dobzilla.

I am assuming inspecting the packets is pinging the server. I have pinged using "vtext.com" and did not get a response back. How can I check the packets sent from the Exchange server to the SMS gateway to be sure they are identical?

Can you send an e-mail using that command to your own regular e-mail account?

No, that is not what I mean -- I really was being sarcastic and rude.
My apologies, might I suggest you read up a little about how email works, specifically SMTP, and google things like "open mail relay" to see why some servers block some messages.

@Laserbeak & schneidz... seems that I can send an email from my corporate email to a private email. The 'sent from' is "<>".

I get the suspicion that your command-line environment isn't configured to send e-mails.

I looked into it, and mine wasn't, I'm looking into getting it set up now.

My command-line environment is configured to send emails, I have send emails via command-line plenty of times. I'll stop asking questions now because of 273's post. Sorry to cause confusion and bother.

Sorry, please continue to post looking for help (I am not a representative of this site) but please read something about email and try to troubleshoot.

No, please, keep posting! I guess I was dead WRONG about my hunch about your command-line environment.

Aaah just got a message via command line in Linux. It stated I have new mail!!!
When I opened up the file using the "CAT" command it shows all my attempts to send a SMS and that the action has failed.
The location of this file is " //var/spool/mail "

So I guess I can safely assume in Linux it is not set up to send SMS via mailx
