    RE: Whats a SMS server

    Mandar,
    SMS Servers are refered to as an SMSC, and yes it is hardware. The SMSC's are located at the local carriers site. They will interface with the Mobile network switching gear to send messages. Most carriers will not let you access them directly, some will have an SMTP Gateway. Interfacing with the SMSC requires SMTP,SMPP,CIMD or CIMD2 depending on the vendor.
