Text messages sent from e-mail to LG G2 show up as different phone number.

So I have the need to receive e-mails sent to my cell phone number for work. I cannot get around this. Each time I receive an e-mail to text message, it comes from a different phone number, not the email address that sent it. I get tons of these alerts and therefore have to open each and every text individually to mark them as read...without downloading some APP. I want to know if there is something I can do to make the texts show the e-mail they are coming from rather than appearing from an incremental number as they are now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Text messages sent from e-mail to LG G2 show up as different phone number.

Solution: number@txt.att.net will always come from a random ATT phone number due to a feature/configuration change ATT made a while ago.  

 

If you want to receive these from the actual e-mails that they were sent you have to send them to number@mms.att.net
