Receive MO messages over SMTP

You can receive mobile originated messages (MO) over e-mail (SMTP). Following is an example of an SMS sent over SMTP:

X-Sender: "4712345678" <4712345678@pswin.com>
X-Receiver: email@my.domain.com
X-PSWinCom-Receiver: 26112
X-PSWinCom-Sender: 4712345678
X-PSWinCom-Text: Hei
MIME-Version: 1.0
From: "4712345678" <4712345678@pswin.com>
To: email@my.domain.com
Date: 12 Jan 2015 15:22:23 +0100
Subject: PSWinCom SMS Gateway Incoming Message
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable


For Content-Type the gateway will choose an appropriate encoding based on content. In most cases this is either us-ascii or UTF-8 when the message contains language specific characters (æ, ø, å etc). In this example the e-mail body translates into plain text:


As you see the SMS content is included both in headers and body.

Possible headers and body elements that are always sent are:

HeaderBody elementDescription
X-PSWinCom-ReceiverReceiverThe shortcode the message was sent to
X-PSWinCom-SenderSenderThe phone number of the sender
X-PSWinCom-TextTextThe text content of the message, this may be multiline in the body while line breaks are stripped in the header

Additional headers and body may be sent if these are enabled for the keyword/short code. These are:
