Hi,

It is entirely dependent on your configuration. For the most part, this is whatever value you want it to be.

If you are going to configure an email client to connect directly to NowSMS as a POP3/SMTP server, this value can truly be any value you want...when you send to phonenumber@whatever.this.domain.name.is, NowSMS will see the domain name and understand you want to route the message to NowSMS.

If, on the other hand, you are trying to connect an entire mail server to SMS, this is more complicated. NowSMS looks like any other SMTP mail server...and to route messages to it, you need an MX record in DNS for the domain name or sub domain name that you will be using for this email server.

There is more good general information here: http://www.nowsms.com/doc/e-mail-to-smsmms-connectivity

In order for me to provide any other clarification, I need more of an explanation of what you are trying to accomplish, and how you want this email interface to be used.
