SMS message sent via email bounced

When my company attempts to page me, they receive this error message via email: 

This Message was undeliverable due to the following reason: <xxxxxxxxxx@txt.att.net> has restricted SMS e-mail Please reply to <xxxxxxxxxx@txt.att.com> if you feel this message to be in error.

 

It had worked until about a month ago.  

 


Thanks!

Re: SMS message sent via email bounced

Hello @shalvor

Thanks for your post.

We can help you send email-to text messages. Instead of xxxx@txt.att.net, use your 10-digit wireless number followed by @mms.att.net to send a message.

Re: SMS message sent via email bounced

Thank you.  I'm more concerned about receipt of SMS emails as that is how my company pages us out.  My error message says "xxxxxxxxxx@txt.att.net> has restricted SMS e-mail".  How can I un-restrict it?

 

Thank you again for your assistance!

Thanks for your feedback @shalvor

 

Have you tested the the email to text feature by using your 10-digit wireless number with @mms.att.net to see if the specific email can be sent?

Re: SMS message sent via email bounced

@shalvor You can use the "SMS" version of this too, just replace "MMS" with "SMS", for the email destination.  This is assuming no "MMS content" however, mostly just alpha-numeric messages, but it seems to be a more stable interface...

*If this (or another post in this thread) fixes your problem/issue, please mark it as "accept-solution", and I'll tag it, to make it easier for others to find the answer(s). FYI: I'm an AT&T end-user, just like most of us in the forum. Thanks.

Re: SMS message sent via email bounced

I finally got some folks at the AT&T Help Desk to assist.  It was discovered that the setting wasn't under "text messaging" in the AT&T Provisioning System, it was under "Email Gateway" in the AT&T Provisioning system.  Once she found that, she unchecked the block and my test message went through.  Thank you all again for trying to help!
