Spam Texts from Unknown Email

I keep receiving text messages from what looks to be a spam/phishing email address. Because these texts are coming from an email address, the att messaging app does not allow me to block the sender. How do I stop these uninvited texts from the sender?

Sorry to say but you basically don’t unless you call and get ATT to block all texts from email, which I believe they can do. I have had success forwarding such texts to 7726, then replying with the originating email address or at least I think I have. In fact, I just reported one yesterday. So far, I’ve never received another spam text from the same email.

Good enough answer for me. I can at least start there. Thank you!
