How do I update NowSMS distribution lists? Can I manage it without using NowSMS web page?

Hi Mitch,

The web interface also includes functionality to upload distribution lists to the server as simple text files. But it is also possible to edit and manage them externally from NowSMS if desired.

These distribution list files are stored under the DLISTS\username directory on the NowSMS server. (Or directly under the DLISTS directory for public distribution lists accessible to all user accounts.)
Each distribution list has a “.txt” file extension, and the format of the file is one phone number per line of text. Optionally, the phone number can be followed by a descriptive name (e.g., “phonenumber – Full Name”)

There is also an HTTP based API that allows you maintain distribution lists from an external application.

That API is described here: http://www.nowsms.com/editing-distribution-lists-and-address-books-in-nowsms
