Spam texts coming from gmail address

I keep getting group Spam texts (20 phone numbers) from Gmail addresses.  I am blocking the address every time; but when I try to report it to 7726 there is no way to say it's coming from an email address not a phone number.  I send the spam text and then when directed to send the "phone number" I send the email address and immediately get another message saying to send the phone number.  Please is there a way to alert ATT that these are coming from email addresses NOT phone numbers?

Just report the email address and ignore the repeated request for a phone number. I can’t prove it but I think they are taking the email address because I’ve never gotten a repeat text from the email address of spam texts I have reported.
