hi andy

i think what you are saying is that you want to use the existing SMTP
channel if you can for easy dev. but you need to pick up the correct
device xslt template for the notification so that the resulting output
is suitable for the end-point device.

the NS design offers us multiple delivery channel and a protocol can be
used across one or many channels. the xslt formatter includes the
option to pick up an xslt file based on the devicetype of the channel.

so you can have 2 deliverychannels as in your sample code which both
call the SMTP protocol although each my point to a different mail
server. define a different devicetype code for each and create a
matching xslt file suitable for the target device. the only contstraint
is that because they use the same protocol they have the same data
elements to choose from . but that shouldnt be a problem.

so you should be able to do what you suggested.
