         string  text          // message text
         );

      Check "Enable Push Notifications" box to allow the client terminal to send messages.

      Then, specify one or several MetaQuotes IDs separated by commas. To find out your MetaQuotes ID, open the mobile version of the terminal and go to Settings -> Messages page. That is how that page looks in the mobile terminal for iPhone:
