As far as I read, even though txt messaging is meant to be used addressed to phone numbers, I beleive the documentation states that if you send a message to you phone from e-mail using the "txt" address i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org, the return address will be some sort of serial number that should allow you to reply to the message, however, on my samsung A177 gophone, this feature does not seem to be working, obviously I'll probably just make use of the "mms" address rather than the "txt" address, but I still want to know, should I be able to reply to a txt message from an e-mail address and expect the message to be properly returned? Is there any configuration action I need to take to get this to work?

Yes you should be able to reply to the coded number. The problem may be with the e-mail address. With the e-mail address from my internet provider I can send to my phone with no problem, if I reply to it it will be delayed hours and sometimes never get it. If I use gmail I have no problems at all.

Thank you, that would make sense., I am using a third party e-mail provider. The mms.att.net address seems to work, I'll just have to stick with that, I guess "txt.att.net" would appear as a legitimate spam source for any mail hosting system that did not know better.
Is there a "from" address I should expect my "txt" e-mail to come from? Many mail hosting providers (including mine) provide "white list" support, to bypass spam filtering.
