what's the best strategy for graceful downgrades using the nowsms mmsc? that is, if the MMS message expires, is there a hook into that expiry that an SMS message can be sent?

i don't think there's a way to detect a non-mms phone when the indication is sent, right? a non-sms phone will just ignore the SMS MMS indication now UAProf is ever received....thus acting on message expiry is probably the only way.

Right now, we don't have any automated process that handles this.

The best way to handle it, if you want to handle it manually, is to scan the MMSCDATA directory, looking at the INI files associated with any ".mms" messages. Any recipients listed in the "[Recipient Status]" section of the INI file, with a status of "Pending" ... were not retrieved.

One of these days, I would like to see us add some options for how to process these messages. But it is hard to say what the best approach would be. How long should you wait before sending as an SMS?

of course the wait should be configurable

i would think by default it should happen when the messages expire and your sweeper removes them from the MMSCDATA directory.

you should add an HTTP callback when this message is deleted.
