Send text message/email with openhab cloud connector

Does anyone know how to send text message or email through openhab cloud connector?

I want to have a motion sensor set up so that when it is triggered, I get a text message to my phone, or email.

Check the mail binding or sendBroadcastNotification

How to do the rules part through Paper UI?

I would not recommend creating any rules through PaperUI at this moment. PaperUI is replaced in the upcoming openHAB 3 and rule creation in PaperUI is very limited to what is possible and bugy. For now, better look into creating rules in files, in jython or Javascript.

Do I need to download openhab3 when it is released or does my openhab2 auto update?
