Hi Bryce,
How do you stop a "retry pending" in the smsout? I noticed that there are quite a lot of entries in my smsout log with this error message. This problem occur because of an error in the mobile number which was submitted to nowsms during one of my testing.

thank you

Hi David,

You can control retry settings using the "RetryDelay" related parameters described in the following thread:

Generally speaking, you should just let the retries have their course. It's just that in many SMSC environments, it is possible that the error codes returned for an invalid phone number are too similar to those that can also be returned for other transient errors. (In the SMPP environment, there is a specific error code indicating that the recipient is invalid, and we do not perform any retries when we receive that particular error response. But other interfaces tend to have more vague error codes.)
