Send multiple SMS messages if text length is greater than one standard SMS message

Select to split messages longer than the allowed length into multiple SMS messages. Specify the maximum number of SMS messages allowed.

NOTE: Each short message is up to 160 characters when using Latin characters, or 70 characters when using non-Latin characters such as Arabic and Chinese.

Append user information to outgoing SMS messages

Add one of the following sender information fields either before or after the SMS message:

  • Display Name
  • Name
  • Surname
  • Company
  • Department

Detect and remove personal signature. Truncate SMS message on the first blank line.

Select to automatically send the text before the first blank line. This ensures that email signatures are not sent as part of an SMS.

Enable automatic routing for incoming messages

Received SMS are automatically routed to the user who sent an SMS to that number.

For example, Joe Bloggs sends an SMS to number 123456. When number 123456 replies back, SMS is automatically routed to Joe Bloggs.

NOTE: If more than one user sends an SMS to the same number, GFI FaxMaker routes replies to the latest sender. However, replies are always routed to all users that had sent an SMS to the same number in the previous 5 hours.
