Hi.

Is it possible to patch NowMMS for parsing "TO" header (with , AND ; delimiters) for email adresses searching?

Now, only one email can be specified in "TO" field.

--------------------------------
ThreadRouteSMTPOut: 553 5.1.3 <first@email.org,second@email.com>... Invalid route address
--------------------------------

It is impossible to send message to more than one email recipient if the client doesn't offer CarbonCopy field (CC).

Best reagrds

To send a message to multiple "TO" recipients, an MMS client is supposed to generate multiple "TO" headers, with one recipient per header instance.

So, technically, you are not supposed to be able to put multiple addresses into a single "TO" header.

But, the real world does differ from the specifications ... and we have seen that end-users in the real world are trying to do this.

We have updated our MMSC so that it will parse multiple recipients out of a single address header if there is a "," or ";" delimiter.

However, this update is not yet publicly available. I estimate that it will be available in about 2 weeks time.

If you have an urgent need for the update, please e-mail nowsms@now.co.uk. Put "Attention: Bryce" in the subject line, and reference this discussion thread.
