    How do message from Bank or popular organization has its name in INBOX?

    Me working on S60 Platform and would like to know how does message from a Bank or Popluar Organization has its name automatically in the Inbox.

    Say, if Citibank sends me an account update message..my Inbox shows Citibank automatically.

    I would like to know which Application does this.Is it Messaging or Contacts ?

    Thanks in advance for ur help...

    I'm rather sure it is the SMSC (SMS message center server) that does it.

    Is this for an sms or email?

    For email this is a part of RFC 822 when you can define an alias and and email address. In fact RSendAsMessages supports this as well.

    Hi Todd, I was asking this for SMS.I checked with Customer care, they told me that it is the Organization which puts the stamp in the from address.So when user receives that he gets From Address as Name instead of Sending Number.

    It is an operator service, since the address part of the delivery PDU is filled by the operator. If you check the format (for example http://www.dreamfabric.com/sms/), you will see that the address can be in alphanumeric format too.
