Hi Alma,

It would help me answer if I knew more about your configuration. If my memory is correct, it is an operator MMSC.

The main concern that I have in this configuration is that a massive campaign may saturate the outbound message queue, which can introduce delays and backlogs for regular message traffic. So it is a question of outbound license speed compared with the size of the broadcast.

Usually it is a good idea to break the campaign into groups so that you can manage this flow.

The easiest way to send an MMS to a distribution list is via the web interface. You can import distribution lists from text files.

Hi Des,

Yes, we are an operator with MMSC service configured.

In which section do we define the distribution list? And how is the campaing started or stopped?

Hi Alma,

This is all done thru the web interface (by default x.x.x.x:8800). You define an account under "SMS Users" to allow access. (See http://www.nowsms.com/doc/web-menu-interface)

However, I would caution that once you send a large campaign, you can't stop it, other than deleting messages from the outbound queue.

what is the most amount of mms recipients to put in a group. say i put 7000 in a group. would it be better to make 7 groups of 1000 and just put group1, group2, group3, group4, (totaling 7000) in the "to:' box



2nd question, when i put a sms text group of 1000 it seems to get jammed at 596 every time.. is there a different setting to have the text trickle out. should i make groups of 500 and do the same group1, group2, group3 in the to: box
