  • If all the Users in the account are Admin then the default owner is the Admin User who created the SMS-Magic account

The default setting can be overridden to configure the required user to receive the messages in a new incoming conversation initiated by a customer. From Standard users who have the Sender ID assigned to them and all the Admin Users in the account, anyone can be made the owner of such Customer Initiated new Incoming conversations.
