Is there any way so I can prefix some letters in senderId.Means if the senderId = xxxxx it should go like AA-xxxxx. I want to prefix "AA-" how this is possible.

Hi,

I think I need a real world example to understand.

Also, please explain how you are using NowSMS. Is this for SMS sending, or as an MMSC? (There may be different answers for different usage scenarios.)

thanks for the reply.
I am using nowSMS to send Text SMS only.
In real world : example
The Govt. of india has made it mandatory to send personal SMS with operator code like AB- as prefix. So I need to put the prefix.

and Also.
1) I have three different operators. and I created three different connections and the prefix code for three is different.
can I configure the prefix differently for three operators?

2) the message Ids created after post sometimes is found same, even when send at different times, can I configure the msgIds also.

My point is the messageID should always be unique. which is a mandatory requirement for the reporting.

Hi Neeraj,

I can't think of any way to address #1.

I assume when you submit the message, you don't know which route it is to be destined for?

We can investigate ways of adding this support, but I need to understand it better. (Real world examples with sample numbers and message routing flow tend to help me, as I tend to get lost with abstract examples.)

Regarding #2 ... I'm not aware of any scenarios where messageIDs are duplicated (until the counter rolls over after 4 billion messages) ... unless you are running a multiple server installation.

In a multiple server installation, you can assign message id prefixes for each server. There is a MessageIDPrefix= setting that can be assigned under the [SMSGW] section of SMSGW.INI or the [SharedVolume] section of SharedVolume.INI.
