    Question How to find out a message is "sent or received"?

    How to find out the sms is sent or received? It can not be found with the address property. The address of a sms is the address of the recipient (If it was sent) or the address of the sender (if it is recieved).

    But when you open the Inbox you need to specify if you want inbox folder (EInbox), outbox folder (EOutbox) and so on. Is it not enough ? I mean, addresses in EInbox are for received sms and in EOutbox for sent ? Just asking since I never used this messaging module in my applications.

    Re: How to find out a message is "sent or received"?

    I move messages to folders in my phone. If I want to access them with python, the only option I have is to move all the messages in all folders to a standard folder like inbox. With this approach the messages will be merges, and sent or recieved messages will be all in the same folder...

    Hum... I see. If this field is not available, it seems that you will need to add some mark in other field. Sorry for not being a specialist in this field but dibo guys will help you with good ideas

    Sorry,

    I thought this was a trick question... all received messages are in Inbox and all sent messages are in Sent folder. There can also be deleted messages, which have been either received or sent, but which are no longer available. You might find info about those via Log module.

    If you're wondering about the other folders: Outbox is a temporary holding place for messages which are "sent" but not actually delivered yet. It's a queue of out-going messages. Draft folder contains sample messages, which you can use to create real messages to sent. Or you can save not yet ready to be sent messages, in case you have to delay sending for a while.

    Cheers,

    I am a normal mobile phone user, I actually know what each folder in messaging is for! I think you have not read what was written in timeline of this thread. Some typical users move their messages to their defined message folders. To be able to back them up with python, they shall move all of their messages to a folder, say inbox. If they do so, how shall the backup program find out which message is sent and which is received. That is the question.

    Re: How to find out a message is "sent or received"?

    Ok,

    Now the question makes more sense . To summarize: if user moves all SMS messages into same folder, how to know which ones were originally sent by user and which ones were originally received by user.

    I'm not a normal user, so I never move any SMS messages into any folders. I believe lots of people would do that, also that taking SMS backup is a useful feature. Just not for me... Wondering how you are going to do restore, if you don't know the original folder of SMS messages? Dumping everything to Inbox, while original message might still be in the real folder could be confusing?

    Good luck,

    Yeah, thats right. The question is that. Restoring isn't really aproblem, since from the beginning I planned to backup all my messages as html documents, restoring on phone does not make any sense when . If I just wanted to backup and restore, nokia pc suite would do the job. I wanted to backup so that I can read them when not using phone, which is an important matter to me.
