We are Facing Problems Submitting bulk SMS
WE import the numbers from the Distribution list but it shows error. It only allows us to submit 120 Numbers at a time via the now SMS web interface. We are using Now SMS 5.51a. Can you tell how can we submit 5000 SMS via the now SMS web interface. We have loaded the 5000 numbers in the distribution list but when its shows error if we submit more then 120 numbers at a time via the now SMS web interface
We are not web developers. can you send us the HTML page which has the sender id option in the web itnerface and there is no limitation in the submission of bulk numbers via the web interface.
If you can provide us the html page, our problem will be solved.

Hi Kiran,

I saw your posting here:

But you might have given more of a clue when you say that you are using the web interface directly.

Internet Explorer (and probably other browsers as well) have a limit as to how much data they will submit in a form using the GET interface.

If you edit (with a text editor like Notepad) "Send Text Message.htm" in the HTML subdirectory of the NowSMS installation, you will find a line in the file that looks like this:

<form method=Get enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded" onsubmit="clearTextBoxCounter()">

Change "Get" to "Post", and the form will be able to handle larger amounts of data.

Also, if you are using distribution lists, these are text files that can be edited externally to NowSMS. You will find these as text files under the NowSMS\DLISTS\username directory.

For adding the "Sender ID" on the web page, while this could be done easily enough by adding an input field named "Sender" ... you might just want to associate a particular sender address with different user accounts on your server. When you define a user under "SMS Users", there is a "Forced Sender Address" which specifies the sender address to be used for messages submitted by that user account.
