Best way to send SMS from Thunderbird?

So, I know it's possible to send texts to phones from an email using SMS. But I have to know their provider to do that, and it gets awkward when I ask that of some people. So, I looked for an SMS extension for Thunderbird, but all I saw were tie-ins to pay-for services. But since SMS has been around for such a long time and it's possible to send one without a pay-for service, surely by now there's a way to do it without knowing the provider?

I have sent sms messages via email for quite a while. If you do not know the provider, just type the number in Google Search, usually the first hit will give you that information. Give it a try and let us know how it works for you.

OK, so I'm trying to use Mozilla Thunderbird as my email application. The version 2.0 installer from their website is of course 32-bit only, which doesn't help me out much. I went to that Mozilla x64 site that was linked in the "Free 64-Bit software" thread... well, that thing shows up as...
