Receive SMS in XML
Clockwork will forward each incoming message to a server of your choosing by making an HTTP POST request. The POST will contain UTF-8 encoded XML. Your server needs to respond with a 200 OK status code to acknowledge receipt of the message, otherwise the API will retry at regular intervals.
Unique ID we assigned to the message, use this if you want to raise a query and to make sure you don’t receive any duplicates.
