This is not solved and AT&T needs to find a solution!

I am having the same problem! Both my husband and I keep receiving text messages from randomly generated emails (so it's useless to forward them to 7726). By trying to google a solution, I found that this has been an issue for different carriers for many years now. Yet, there are no successful or simple solutions to this problem. Every forum I find has nothing that has worked for us so far. Now I'm more curious about how this is even possible and how we are being targeted. A few months ago we had zero issues with emails texting and suddenly, it's multiple ones a day.

Not entirely true, I've been searching the same. It appears Verizon has had a solution to this dating as far back as 2013. ATT is too comfortable in their monopoly on service availability.

This is likely going to cost them some customers, it's certainly got me looking into how I can switch.

they can block ALL email to text this way. MMS, SMS- mine Different domains google or whatever (mine was being sent from different gmail addresses every time to a group of about 19-20 of us w similar numbers trying to get us to click on some gross porn site. I reported everywhere else It said too but never could find way to block till found another post- shared above. Hope it helps!

This is the issue that’s constantly happening with my iPhone. Main sender is the gmail (that’s not the same each time) account with the same attached (209) numbers. I keep having to block the gamil account. The weird thing is that the message is filtered under Contacts & SMS. How can I stop this from happening in the future?
