I thought I would post a follow up on this, even though I just posted it a minute ago. I connected in to the live Cingular chat. The tech guy said that the message from 1111302000 beginning in //SV and ending in //VS is some spam from who knows where and not from Xpressmail.Unfortunately this is a problem with Cingular not having spam filters on thier SMS system. For now, nothing can be done except to remove texting from your account. (e.g.: you can't receive any text messages.)
He told me two interesting things:
If I delete the SMS Message without opening and reading it that Cingular cannot charge me. Doesnt sound true to me.AFAIK, all text sent or received is billable. So, I'm with you that that doesn't sound right.
If I have my Xpressmail settings on "All SMS Alerts Off" that Xpressmail will never send a single SMS and that Cingluar cannot charge me.It shouldn't send any SMS, but if it's still happening then somehow the setting didn't take on Xpressmail's end. But from the previous, if you got sent an SMS, then you're charged. But at least this is something that you could argue to have the charges removed.
I took a screen shot of the chat in case either of what he says is not true.

I suspect that Xpressmail PE is still sending you periodic SMS messages when you have new mail arrive to let you phone know to connect up over your data plan (media net or pda unlimited) and download your new mail. Thats is how it seems to be working for my phone. I was looking around and finding some posts where people with much newer phones could get true push technology on them with xpressmail.
