Please note that you will require SMS connectivity in order to send MMS messages. An ADSL connection by itself, without either an account with an SMS service provider, or a GSM modem, will not be sufficient to send any messages.

Please refer to the following thread for more information about the two modes of sending MMS messages:

http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/589.html

The "direct delivery" method described in that link (the default mode for NowSMS) does require that receiving devices be able to connect back to your NowSMS server in order to complete the MMS delivery process.

If you are working with a non-dedicated IP address, then you can use a service like www.no-ip.com in order to give a static host name to your dynamic IP address. Then configure that host name as the "Local Host Name or IP Address" in the NowSMS "MMSC" configuration.

The other alternative is using a GSM/GPRS modem, and submitting the message through your mobile operator. (Many mobile operators are closed to external MMSCs, so this may by your only option anyway.) This approach is described in:
