Send messages via iMessage and SMS Relay (note, SMS Relay requires OS X 10.10 and an established SMS Relay pairing between your Mac and an iPhone running iOS8)

Note: This extension works by controlling the OS X "Messages" app via AppleScript, so you will need that app to be signed into an iMessage account
