Hi Xmen,

Sorry, we require that the messages get submitted to NowSMS via HTTP or SMTP.

Hi,
Presumable you can use the HTTP command line strings to send any messages from Excel/Access ?
Is there anyway that you can pick up messages received by the Gateway via the command line ?
Thanks

From within a scripting language that was accessing the files, yes.

You can define a command-line program that gets called for processing received SMS messages.

Or, your program can scan the SMS-IN subdirectory looking for received SMS messages via the file based interface instead of relying on NowSMS to call your program when a message is received.
