The e-mail interface is primarily designed for routing messages out as a text-only SMS, or as an MMS.

However, there is also an ability to have an e-mail message sent out as a multimedia WAP Push (where all of the content of the e-mail message is packaged into a dynamically generated URL link and the WAP push points to this URL).

The easy way to achieve this is to change the "Default Route" on the "MMSC Routing" page to be "Convert MMS to Multimedia WAP Push". This disables all MMS sending, and forces the gateway to use Multimedia WAP Push whenever it would otherwise use MMS.

If you do not want to disable the MMS functionality, there is another trick. Although, I'm not sure whether or not this is documented anywhere...

Append ".wappush" to the username portion of the e-mail address. For example, "" signals that the message to 4477777777 should be sent as a WAP push.

Note that when you use this interface, you can't really send a WAP Push for an existing URL. It is expected that all of the content for the push is attached to the e-mail message, and NowSMS will extract the content of the e-mail message, and repurpose it in a dynamic URL created on the NowSMS server ... sending out a WAP Push pointing to that URL.

It is possible to include an external link to an external URL within the text of the e-mail message such that this link will appear within the content of the dynamically generated URL. Within the text, put "[[[" anywhere that you want "<", and "]]]" anywhere that you want ">".

Sorry if this explanation is a bit confusing. It's hard to explain. But if you do some experimenting using the above advice it should make more sense.
