When a text message is send and received by the recipient it appears that NotePage is prefixing all texts with (Text Message).

For example if NotePage sends a text from "user@domain.com" with the message of "text" it is delivered to the recipients phone as:

Quote:
(Text Message) USER:text


Is there anyway to prevent this or is this by design?

That is the default arrangement in NotePager Pro but it is also user configurable with the program's template system.

To modify the global template, you'll need to create a file named 'global.mtp' in the NotePager Pro Global Database folder and this file will control what gets output for your messages.

The following variables are supported:
%Sender%
%Date%
%Time%
%Recipient%
%Message%

For example, if you only want the message to contain the text entered and nothing else, the file would only contain:
%Message%

If you wanted to add any additional text, you could. So, you could structure a template something like this:
Date: %Date% Time: %Time%
From: %Sender%
Msg: %Message%

The program reads the template in when you start it, so if you make any template modifications while the program is still running, you'll need to close and re-open it for them to take effect.

I created a global.mtp (in the location of my GlobalDB C:\ProgramData\NotePage\NotePager Pro\5.0) with the following:

Code:
TEST TEMPLATE
%Sender%
%Message%


However, even after closing, re-opening and testing the text message is still delivered with "(Text Message)" at the beginning of the text to it now reads:

Code:
(Text Message) TEST TEMPLATE
USER
text


I know the change took since the "TEST TEMPLATE" code is delivered with the text now.

I actually figured it out by reading another forum post.

the "(Text Message)" text is actually configured globally using the "global.stp" file.
