Hello all,

I have managed to run the service successfully to send sms to many recipients at once. And all the success goes to the developer and Keke for his excellent helps all the time.

Now I am looking forward to use it robustly, I have few things in mind those I think is possible to use.

> I am trying to send sms to many recipients using one file. ( I have seen the post here that contains the script but I rally dont know how to run and enable the script in my Windows Xp environment using Cygwin)

> Secondly, I am looking for a reporting technique that will enable me to identify which SMS was sent and which was not sent at a one go if I have used many recipients.

> I wanted to read and save the incoming SMS to Mysql database.

Thanks for any help

First, most of sample scripts use formail command and you need to install it. Formail is included in the procmail package. Run the Cygwin setup and search and install the package named procmail.

You need to create a checkhandler. In the global part of smsd.conf, define:
checkhandler = /usr/local/bin/smsd_checkhandler.sh

Create this file with a content from this post: Multiple recipients in single SMS file. Make the script executable: chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/smsd_checkhandler.sh.

You can create a message file with multiple recipients, and checkhandler will put recipients to separate files. From smsd's point of view, one message can contain one recipient, because messages are sent one at a time.

In the smsd.conf, define:
sent = /var/spool/sms/sent
failed = /var/spool/sms/failed


As you now have a different file for each recipient, you can monitor sent directory. If some message fails, you can find it from failed directory.

If you include an additional header, like Sending_group: 12345, in your original file, with this header you can check what has been the "sending group". I do not know if that is important to you, but anyway, all headers expect To: headers are copied to each file.

Check this post: Sample eventhandler to store messages into SQL database. It's a sample script which could be defined as an eventhandler. In the smsd.conf:
eventhandler = /usr/local/bin/smsd_eventhandler.sh

Create the script and make it executable.

From the same post you can see what kind is a structure of database.

While you are now starting to use scripts, and surely you want to make some changes to them, sooner or later ;), please notice: When current version of smsd is running the script, possible errors are now shown and may cause lot of troubles. Because of this, always test your script manually after any changes are done. For example you can run:
/usr/local/bin/smsd_eventhandler.sh RECEIVED /var/spool/sms/incoming/GSM1.aabbcc to see if a message is handled correctly and without error messages.
