This, combined with your other question at http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/23973.html ... gives me a little better idea of what you're trying to accomplish.

But I still want to make sure I understand.

I ASSUME that you are running NowSMS as an MMSC, and that you want to intercept and log all MMS messages.

This is commonly required for regulatory reasons by many governments.

How do we support this?

In NowSMS 2007.05.03 and later, we support an "Automatic BCC" capability.

For every MMS message that is submitted to the MMSC, we add a BCC recipient so that the message is forwarded to an additional recipient destination. That additional recipient sees the original message sender, as well as a list of To/CC recipients.

Here are the details of how to configure the setting:


quote:

* MMSC: Additional configuration parameter added to force all submitted MMS messages to be automatically BCC'd to an additional recipient. Usually this recipient would be a special short code routed to a VASP or to an e-mail address, where another application is processing the messages for archival, tracking, and/or regulatory requirements. To add an automatic BCC recipient, edit MMSC.INI, and under the [MMSC] header, add AutoBCC=xxxxxxxxxxxx, where xxxxxxxxxxxx is the address that should be added as an additional BCC recipient.




How would you actually implement it?

In most instances what we see is an e-mail address as the AutoBCC address. So all messages are copied to an e-mail address, and there is a separate program that is written to capture and process all messages that this e-mail address receives.

But it could also be a short code routed to an MM7 connection, so you'd receive an XML-based HTTP POST in the MM7 format for each message.

Most people who use this feature use the e-mail functionality.

All this said ... this might not be what you're asking about. I can only guess as you have not provided much detail in your question.

Let me explain a little bit more. We are not really looking to track all messages instead we want to have like an MMS portal where all our customers can login and see all his sended and received messages. For that purpose we need to send a copy of all mms to an external server which is going to handle this MMS portal funtionallity. We need this copy to be in a standant format which can be handle by our portal provider. I think we can use one of the method you previously mentioned, but if there's a standart way to do it let me know.

Hi Richard,

I understand. Different usage case, but that would probably work for you.

I think you're going to need to use the AutoBCC to an e-mail address. Then your portal would receive all the MMS messages as e-mails ... and could process them based upon From/To/Cc recipients to make them available to the appropriate subscribers.
