Hi Bryce,

From an utility i am sending utf-8 encoded messages to the Now SMS gateway. I have given a http url in the Command to Execute option. But when a message is received, its getting stored in the SMS-IN folder rather than going to the url. But normal text messages are working fine.
Pls do provide me a solution.

Thanks in advance,

If the message is in a standard text format ... such as Unicode ... then NowSMS would route it to the 2-way command.

But if it is just being sent as a binary UTF-8 data, then NowSMS will not route the message to a 2-way command unless @@BINARY@@ is included in the URL (this is a trigger to indicate that the command understands binary messages).
