Hello list,

I am using Nowsms 2011-07-05
I have setup a gsm modem with a 2 way command *@* mailto:@@SMSPREFIX@@

When i send an sms to my gsm modem starting with an email address, i correctly get an email. The problem is that sender of email comes as

When trying to reply to this email, my sms gets rejected because it cannot find user +XXXXXXXXXXXX because it is looking for XXXXXXXXXXXX.

MMSC users are added with no "+" in the beggining of their phonenumbers.

I have added in MMSC.ini RemovePlusFromEMail=Yes but it does not work. Am i doing something wrong, or i should change mmsc users phonenumbers and add a "+" infront of it

Thank you in advance

Hi Dinos,

Unfortunately the 2-way command processor does not consult the RemovePlusFromEMail=Yes setting. So it will always include a "+" in the e-mail sender address.

On the e-mail receiving side, the expectation is that the phone numbers have been added starting with the "+" character. Assuming a user defined as +XXXXXXXXXXXX, it will accept or However, if the user is defined as XXXXXXXXXXXX, it will only accept
