Hi,

That is no longer a supported version of NowSMS, so my response may or may not work with available configuration settings for that version.

Problems with the "@" character usually occur with SMPP connections. If you are having a problem with this character, it suggests that the SMS provider is expecting a different text character set than NowSMS is using.

In the "Advanced Settings" for the SMPP connection in the "SMSC" area of NowSMS, it is possible to specify which character set NowSMS should use when communicating with the SMSC.

The choices are:

"Default" - The GSM character set is used, with NowSMS indicating that the "SMSC default" character set is to be used.

"IA5 (GSM)" - The GSM character set is used, and NowSMS sets a flag to indicate that the GSM character set is being used.

"iso-8859-1 (Latin)" - The iso-8859-1 character set is used, and NowSMS sets a flag to indicate that this character set is being used.

In most cases, if you are experiencing a problem, you need to change this setting to "iso-8859-1 (Latin)".

(Note: These settings apply to text messages that contain GSM characters only. If a message requires Unicode encoding, Unicode encoding will be used automatically and this setting will be ignored.)
