Hi everyone.

Is there a way to get the timestamp in where an incoming SMS was received by the SMPP Server?

the case is like this.

an a given date:

1. at 10:30 the user sends an sms to my shortnumber from his/her handheld.

2. At 10:32 the SMPP Server receives the message.

3. At 11:45 I stablish a RX session with my  SMPP server.

4. at 11:46 I receive the SMS that the user sent in step 1.

what I would like to know, is how, or from where can I get the  timestamp of step 2.

As far as I know, the availability of this info and its encoding can vary from one provider to another, in my particular case, I've been told by my provider that this info is available.

Since I couldn't find any property on the received message, or its underline PDUs (like SingleDestinationPDU), I would like to know, if possible, where should I look or which part of the original code should I check in order to seee if this information is actually available.

thanks a lot in advance.
