12 Typical comments from Systems Integrators "msXmms for Exchange 2000/2003 offers large account customers a low risk installation because no client software is required and it leverages Microsoft Active Directory for authorisation, message restriction controls, cost centre accounting (without extending the schema). For Australian Government accounts, msXmms filters message content to ensure that only messages containing unclassified in subject fields can be sent via SMS or MMS – Warren Prentice, Infrastructure Architect EDS Australia – Australian Taxation Office Account
13 MMS & SMS message flow Note: msXmms is targeted at medium to large enterprise customers deploying Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003 networks where control and authorisation is a critical business requirement Small account customers should consider client / gateway solutions designed for low end solutions which requires desktop client software to communicate directly with a service provider.

17 Key staff or customers who must be contacted via SMS or MMS can be added to Active Directory
18 Outlook user also defined as an Active Directory Contact Only Gail Buchanan can send to Laurence Buchanan. This is standard security built into Microsoft Active Directory and Exchange 2000/2003 Message size restrictions built into Microsoft Active Directory and Exchange 2000/2003
19 Sending MMS messages using Active Directory (global address list)
20 Outlook user sending MMS & SMS (Enabled via a keyword) All sms and mms messages sent by this user are logged to a database in msXmms.
