       gammu-smsd-files  - gammu-smsd(1) backend using filesystem as a message


       gammu-smsd(1) supports several backends. Actual backend is chosen in  a
       config file gammu-smsdrc(5).

       FILES  backend  stores  all  data on a filesystem in folders defined by
       configuration (see gammu-smsdrc(5)  for  description  of  configuration

   Receiving of messages
       Received  messages are stored in a folder defined by configuration. The
       filename                            will                             be
       IN<date>_<time>_<serialno>_<phone_number>_<sequence>.<ext>, for example

       Explanation of fields:

       <date> - date in format YYYYMMDD
       <time> - time in format HHMMSS
       <serialno> - order of a message (in case more messages were received at
       same time), in format NN
       <sequence> - part of the message for multipart messages, in format NN
       <ext>  -  txt  for  text  message,  8-bit  messages are stored with bin

       The content of the file is content of the message  and  the  format  is
       defined by configuration directive InboxFormat (see gammu-smsdrc(5)).

   Transmitting of messages
       Transmitted  messages  are read from a folder defined by configuration.
       The filename should be one of the following formats:

       - OUT<phone_number>.<ext><options>
       - OUT<priority>_<phone_number>_<serialno>.<ext><options>

       Explanation of fields:

       <priority> - an alphabetic character (A-Z) A = highest priority
       <ext> - txt for normal text SMS, smsbackup for SMS backup  format  used
       by Gammu
       <options> - Options appended to the extension applying to text SMS:
        d - delivery report requested
        f - flash SMS
        b - WAP bookmark as name,URL

       For  example  OUTG20040620_193810_123_+4512345678_xpq.txtdf  is a flash
       text SMS requesting delivery reports.

       Other fields are same as for received messages.

       SMSes will be transmitted sequentially based  on  the  file  name.  The
       contents  of  the  file  is  the  SMS  to be transmitted (in Unicode or
       standard character set).

       The contents of the file is the SMS to be transmitted  (in  Unicode  or
       standard  character set), for WAP bookmarks it is split on as Name,URL,
       for text messages whole file content is used.

       Please note that if file is not in Unicode, encoding is detected  based
       on  locales, which do not have to be configured if SMSD is running from
       init script. If this is your case, please  add  locales  definition  to
       init script.


       Example of the ’detail’ inbox format:

              SMSC = "+4540590000"
              SMSCUnicode = 002B0034003500340030003500390030003000300030
              Sent = 20021201T025023
              State = UnRead
              Number = "+4522706947"
              NumberUnicode = 002B0034003500320032003700300036003900340037
              Name = ""
              NameUnicode =
              Text00 = 004100420043004400450046004700480049004A004B004C004D004E004F0050005100520053005400550056005700580059005A000A
              Coding = Default
              Folder = 1
              Length = 27
              Class = -1
              ReplySMSC = False
              RejectDuplicates = True
              ReplaceMessage = 0
              MessageReference = 0
