Users can set up SMS notification phone numbers to be reminded of appointments and tasks. The Zimbra Web Client Preferences>Notification, Notifications By SMS section Region and Carrier menus lists the regions and carriers that are available.

ZmSMS properties files in the /opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps/zimbra/WEB-INF/classes/messages/ directory contain known SMS/email gateways of various telephone companies by region. You can add additional SMS/email gateway carriers that are specific to your region to these properties files.

Each carrier is identified by a key in the form of carrier_{carrierId}

where carrierId is represented by {regionId}_{carrierName}

Each carrier has a label and (optionally) an image, an email pattern, and hint text, specified by the .label, .image, .pattern, or .hint suffixes, respectively.

Example: carrier_UnitedStates_ATTWireless.pattern = {0}@txt.att.net

To add a new carrier

1. SSH to the Zimbra server.

2. As zimbra, change directory to

/opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps/zimbra/WEB-INF/classes/messages/

3. Edit the ZmSMS.properties file for the region that you want to add carriers.

4. At the end of the properties file, add the carrier names in the form carrier_{carrierId}.{label|image|pattern|hint}= Mail_to_SMSNumber

5. Restart the server.

zmcontrol restart


Note: When you upgrade ZCS, changes made to the ZmSMS.properties files are lost. You should make a copy of the changed properties files before the upgrade and restore these files after the upgrade.
