Hi Omar,

There is currently no setting to block received messages.

If you uncheck receive messages, this causes NowSMS to bind as an SMPP transmitter (see http://www.nowsms.com/smpp-connection-types-sender-receiver-transceiver for more information on SMPP connection types).

However, if the other side of the connection wants to deliver messages, we do accept them. This is done to avoid problem with delivery receipts where some SMPP servers insist on delivering the receipts back over the same connection, even if the connection is a transmitter only.

That said, I can see scenarios where it may be preferable to either refuse delivered messages, or accept and ignore delivered messages.

I will discuss this with our engineering team for consideration in future releases.

At present, the best suggestion I can offer is to configure a 2-way command to process these messages without taking any action on them. The easiest way to do this is to configure any command (such as our echo example), but UNcheck "Command returns response text" so that NowSMS will ignore any reply from the command and take no action.

Follow-up.

We did post an updated version that can be configured to ignore all received messages from a particular SMSC connection.


This update has been posted at http://www.nowsms.com/download/nowsms20121004.zip

Relevant info:

* SMPP: For outbind (NowSMS initiated) SMSC connections, NowSMS will accept inbound messages even if "Receive SMS" is not enabled. This setting has been used primarily for determining which type of SMPP connection to use. If an SMSC wished to deliver messages even though NowSMS was connected only in transmitter mode, they would be accepted. A new setting has been added for configurations where deliver_sm messages should not be accepted. To enable this setting, edit SMSGW.INI, and under the appropriate [SMPP - server:port] section header, add IgnoreReceivedMessages=Yes. When this setting is enabled, NowSMS will not return an error, it will simply ignore the received message.

We are also planning to add additional support to the SMSIN Accounting Callback to allow a callback to selectively reject inbound messages from SMSC connections. Further detail on this additional callback functionality will be discussed in the following thread: http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/71236.html
