I am not sure if this is possible, but this is what i'd like to do:

Use NowSMS to receive picture messages (MMS's) and post them via a HTTP post to a web-based ASP script that stores the picture in a database.

From reading on this forum, I think that NowSMS can do this (via the MMS routing "Route via MM7" option). I am assuming that I need to do some sort of conversion from the MM7 protocol?

Am I heading in the right direction? Do you have any good starting places/links?

Hi Alex,

Yes, you would need to parse from the MM7 format in order to do this.

For a quick and dirty solution, we have quite a few customers that use the "MMS-IN" directory interface. Basically, they just scan the "MMS-IN" directory for new message files, and process the messages from there. (Then they don't have to do as many format conversions.)

There's some good information on the format of the files in the "MMS-IN" directory at the following link:

MM7 is a bit more complicated, but it is mostly MIME decoding that is required. Here's a simple example: ontent/Submitting_MMS_Messages_MM7.htm
