Gammu SMS Daemon is a program that periodically scans GSM modem for received messages, stores them in defined storage and also sends messages enqueued in this storage. It is perfect tool for managing big amounts of received or sent messages and automatically process them.
You can currently store received messages in files or in various databases. MySQL and PostgreSQL are supported natively and wide range of others (including SQLite, Microsoft Access or Oracle) through ODBC or libdbi (libdbi backend is currently not available in Windows builds).
The package includes also tool
gammu-smsd-inject which will help
you creating long text messages and
allows you to monitor current status of SMS Daemon or phone.
For managing messages in the database, you can use Kalkun frontend, which provides web interface to messages and phonebook. It works with MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite3 database. Check screenshots to see how it looks like.
