If one sends an MMS from the web interface and attaches 2 (or more) files with the same name, files get overwritten and only one is sent.

This seems to make sens, since when MMS file has to be compiled, system sees 2 files with the same name, therefore overwrites the first with the 2d..

In our application, we are receving all MMS in the MMS-In directory: each directory contains one file with one picture named Picture1.
When we want to send 2 or more of those files to a MS, we are facing the above pb...of course we can always rename the files in the MMS-in dir. but this is not very convenient.

It there a way the system would automatically assigns different names to the attachements in case 2 of them have the same name?

Hi Matt,

It would be a rather involved process for us to modify the logic in the web interface to allow the posting of multiple pieces of content with the same base filename.

However, we can make a relatively simple adjustment for the processing of received messages, so that if a message contains multiple parts with duplicated filenames, no parts are overwritten. Instead, we'll just dynamically generate different filenames for the subsequent messages (e.g., filename1.jpg, filename2.jpg, etc.)

We're still testing the formal release of v5.50, so we'll get this change applied in that release.
