I do not know what type of mistake you have made. I would normally guess that you are processing 2-way SMS, but your other posting in this forum says that you are unable to get that working with your mobile phone. (Older versions of NowSMS do infinitely retry 2-way scripts if the script returns an error. This behavior was changed several years ago to avoid new users having problems like you describe.)

Since 2-way SMS is not working at all for you,, I can only guess you have a PHP script that generated a lot of duplicate messages.

Stop the NowSMS services and remove all messages from the outbound queue.

Unfortunately, you seem to be running an extremely old version of the product ... which, as this seems to be a new installation, I can only assume is pirated software ... So I am not very sympathetic to your condition.

I do not believe that software version has any tools for displaying the outbound message queue, but I will tell you that there is a Q subdirectory under NowSMS in which queued messages are stored. You can delete these files (or the entire directory) to clear the outbound message queue.
