Personally I'd expect either no acknowledgement of the source or a very brief 
one in an SMS if there's room, certainly not a URL. SMSs longer than 160 
characters go as two or more messages. Most phones assemble them back into a 
single message upon receipt, but a few don't, so short messages are desirable 
from more than a cost point of view.

On the blog, I'd expect to see a link back to the archives, because on the web 
it's general practise to direct traffic back to the site one has copied 
material from. The original email itself isn't linkable, so the archived 
version is the next best thing.
