Hello,

I've been toying around with the nowsms gateway but i'm still not sure it really provides what i need, so if anyone can clarify this for me it would be most helpful.

Is there a possability of sending MMS messages by emailing the contents to the gateway, and then the gateway sending the MMS via the GSM modem?
(if so, how would this be configured? .. what should the email include and look like?)


Also i've sent an email requesting pricing informating ... but no responses yet..


Thank you for your time and efforts,
Boaz B.

Hi Boaz,

Yes, that is possible.

Make sure you've gone through the setup process to submit messages via the web menu interface, and that this is all working first.

Then move on to the e-mail setup.

The MMSC appears to an e-mail setup as a separate SMTP server. So you would need to either configure DNS and assign a domain or subdomain name to the MMSC ... or define an explicit route on your existing mail server to tell it how to route messages to a domain name that you define for the MMSC.

Then basically, the e-mail related settings are contained on the "MMSC" page of the NowSMS configuration dialog.

There is a real good description of these settings in the following thread:

http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/3451.html

In the above thread, someone was asking about e-mail to SMS.

E-mail to MMS is very similar, so the same information from that thread would apply ... up until the point where that thread starts discussion SMS to e-mail, which is very different from MMS to e-mail.

When you submit an MMS message via e-mail, you are basically submitting to phonenumber@mms.domain.name (the domain name is configurable), and the different multimedia objects of your message (including a SMIL file if you want) are included as standard e-mail attachments.

In the MMS world, MMS over SMTP is referred to as MM4, so there is a more complete message example in the following link:

http://www.nowsms.com/documentation/ProductDocumentation/mms_notifications_and_c ontent/Submitting_MMS_Messages_MM4.htm

I hope that helps.

Apologies that you have not received an e-mail reply. I don't see your e-mail address in our logs, but I have forwarded your information from this thread to a product specialist who will reply back to you.

Hi Bryce,

Thank you for the quick (and thorough) response.
I think my email wasnt in your logs since it was emailed from the office address.

I was surprised to see how simple it is...
I will give everything you suggested a try and see how it works out.

Thanks again!
Boaz

Boaz,

Ok. I forwarded your hotmail address to someone and asked them to send you information. So you should get that shortly.
