Thanks Bn,
I have another problem, I want to perfom mail server with sms alert when users received mails in their mail box, i really don't know how i can use Now sms/mms to do it. Notice that users don't use now sms/mms as SMTP Server, we'll have another mail server which can be install on the same pc with now sms gateway
thanks in advance

Brice,

E-mail interfaces are always confusing to configure.

But this type of setup is relatively simple.

Basically, from their e-mail client (or e-mail server), the users are going to define rules that forward selected messages to another e-mail address. That other e-mail address is their SMS or MMS address.

Then you configure NowSMS so that it can receive e-mail for this other address. NowSMS has an SMTP receiver, so from this perspective, it looks like another mail server. You need to either setup a DNS MX (mail exchange) record for NowSMS to be able to receive mail, or most mail servers will allow you to define a forwarded domain, so that your mail server will forward mail for the domain name that you use for SMS or MMS to NowSMS.

The following thread has some more explanation of the configuration issues:

Generally our format is:

sender /subject /start of message text

We don't have any configuration on this at present (other than limits for whether or not to allow "start of message text" to span multiple concatenated messages ... by default it is going to truncate the message when the SMS being sent exceeds 160 characters text or 70 characters Unicode).
