800xA v6.0: "SMS and e-mail messaging extension": filtering of alarms
What sort of filtering does the "SMS and e-mail messaging" extension provide in terms of selecting which alarms will trigger an SMS notification?
Ideally, I'd like to provide the operators with a list of some alarms and let the operator enable or disable SMS notification for each alarm. Is this possible?

The SMS email messaging extension is actually the message log, this is a List of events which is filtered according to only the messaging messages. Making a clear view of what messages have been sent, which failed , why they failed etc.
According to your wish it is not possible to enable or disable sms notification on operators wish. The SMS notification works in the following way, a configured Alarm/Event List specifically for the SMS messages must be configured. This means any alarm that comes in this list will automatically generate a sms based on the user and agenda defined.
So if your wish would be somehow to control this, then you would need to engineer a way that the alarm does not come in / or is enabled to go in the alarm list you defined to be used by SMS service.
Hope this helps to clarify your wish
