We have some incomming messages which are coming from a short code which we want to block from sending from our nowsms platform. I notice, from what i can tell, nowsms doesn't allow you to block certain SMS-IN messages, can this be done or is this a feature you would need to add to give us the ability to block/reject certain incoming messages?

Thanks,
Blair

Hi Blair,

No, there is no option to selectively block messages received from an SMSC connection.

We have considered adding support for a block/discard response for the SMSIN accounting callback. I'm not sure what else we could do. Thoughts?

Thanks for your reply.

I think the best way to achieve this would be as you mentioned and add this to the SMSIN accounting callback.

If you are planning on adding this to a future release please let me know as i would be interested.

Thanks,
Blair

Today's technology is providing all the features in mobile but why it is not providing the feature to block receiving particular messages!!

It was not a design issue that we considered at the time.

Our opinion was that if an application did not want to process some messages, that application should contain the logic.

We are re-evaluating this, and are planning to add a facility that allows an accounting callback to block a received message.

Hi Blair,

A follow-up...we have added support for allowing an accounting callback to discard selected inbound messages.

The SMSIN callback processing can now cause an inbound message to be discarded without further processing by including the text AcceptMessage=No in the HTTP response to the callback.

This feature will be supported in future versions. For now, it has been implemented in an interim release available for download at http://www.nowsms.com/download/nowsms20121018.zip.

If you are referring to messages received by NowSMS, yes.

However, to block an incoming message, you must implement an SMS Accounting Callback. These callbacks are described here: http://www.nowsms.com/doc/advanced-configuration-settings/sms-accounting-callbac ks

The Type=SMSIN callback signals a received SMS message. If the HTTP response from your callback includes the text AcceptMessage=No then NowSMS will ignore the received message.
