The SMS Server Tools send and receive short messages through GSM modems or mobile phones. Messages are stored as text files in spool directories. External programs or scripts of any language can be used to filter, inspect, and answer messages automatically. Events and alarms can be passed to scripts for integration in monitoring tools. The program generates performance statistics as well. This daemon supports 7, 8, and 16 bit character sets as well as binary data (ringtones, logos, wap-push), user data header, flash, and delivery reports.

Release Notes: A bug in the smsevent script has been fixed. This script did not concatenate long messages on Fedora.
Release Notes: This release uses longer filenames for received messages, allowing it to keep more files in the incoming spool directory. In addition, the unlock() function has been renamed to solve a name conflict on the QNX operating system.
Release Notes: String buffer termination errors have been fixed. This release reduces the risk of abnormal program termination in case of bad entries in the config file and bad modem answers. It also reduces the risk of missing the last digit in received phone numbers.
Release Notes: Compared to version 2.x, this branch includes some enhancements for the UTF-8 character set and some experimental extras.
Release Notes: This release fixes a documentation bug regarding the [provider] section in the configuration file. The program has been changed to support both the [provider] and [providers] keywords as well as both [queue] and [queues].
