Hi, I need clarity on the following statement in the User Manual “When sending to an SMS or MMS recipient, the phone number is placed at the start of the subject line.” (Now Wireless Limited, 2013, p. 259). Assuming there are two mailboxes involved – say “mailbox1” and “mailbox2”, and that NowSMS will be polling “mailbox2” every 120 seconds for new messages. Given that other configuration procedures are in place and “mailbox1” wants to send an email to "mailbox2" for onward transmission by NowSMS as an SMS. Should the above statement in the manual be deployed as

From: mailbox1@gmail.com
To: mailbox2@gmail.com
Subject: CellPhone Number & “ ” & Message Text
CC: *
BCC: *
Message:

Or

From: mailbox1@gmail.com
To: mailbox2@gmail.com
Subject: *
CC: *
BCC: *
Message: CellPhone Number & “ ” & Message Text

I am thinking that NowSMS will authenticate "mailbox1" as an authorized email-sms sender and pass on the message in "mailbox2" to the receiver specified as CellPhone Number… is this right? And where is the right place to put the phone number and message in the above setup?

Hi Chala,

I'm not sure I understand the question.

But in this "shared mailbox configuration", where NowSMS is polling mailbox2@gmail.com, it wants to see the receiving number at the start of the subject line.

This means:

Subject: CellPhoneNumber Message Text

or

Subject: CellPhoneNumber
Message: Message Text

Hi Des, the question is 'where is the recipient's cellphone number supposed to be placed... in the Subject or in the Message body. Please see screen shot attached.

Hi Chala,

Sorry if I am not being clear. The recipient number must be in the subject.
