Characters can be removed by using an empty replacement, "".
By default mappings Mappings are only applied to supported for 7-bit text messages. If you need to apply mappngs to binary or Unicode messages the connector keywords BINARYMAPPING and UCSMAPPING are available.
Both source and destination addresses can be rewritten by EMG after a message has been received or before a message is sent. This is particularly useful to make sure that addresses comply with the format requirements of the receiving entity.
This example could be used in Sweden where we want to handle addresses received in the following formats:
International format, + as prefix
International format, no prefix
International format, 00 as prefix
When messages are sent out the receiving SMSC expected format is usually an international format without any prefix. The above REPLACEPREFIX statement would perform the wanted rewrite. Once again, operations are performed in sequence from left to right.
