It is NOT SPAM.These are Cingular XPress mail push mail "SMS Triggers".XPress mail push works by the xpress mail server sending a silent SMS (as described in the previous messages) that XPress mail intercepts. That SMS message tells Xpress mail to "Go get/sync new email."So new mail comes in. Xpress mail server sees it. Sends an SMS to the phone. XPress Mail gets the SMS and goes and retrieves the mail.
When XPress mail is intalled on yoiur phone, it intercepts these special SMS messages so that they don't go to the messaging client. So you normally would never see them. They would be silent.But the Orig. Poster took the SIM out and put it in another phone that doesn't have Xpress Mail. Therefore Xpress Mail doesn't intercept the SMS and they end up in the normal SMS applicaiton.The same thing would happen if you deleted Xpress mail from the PDA without turning push mail off first.The way to fix this is to put the SIM back in to the PDA with XPress mail. Go in to xpress mail settings, and turn off push email. If it's already off, turn it back on, then turn it back off again. See my post here fore details:At that point you should stop getting these SMSs.Normall if your email program doesn't go respond to the SMS push triggers, I htink the server is supposed to give up and stop eventually, but appearently it is not doing that.I will note that YOU ARE NOT CHARGED FOR THESE SPECIAL SMS TRIGGER MESSAGES. These are a funciton of the free Xpress mail server and you will not see charges on your bill (or any acknowledgment of getting them). I've used xpress mail for 3 years and I'm very familiar with this feature. Trust me.So going to your Attourney's office won't help as there will be no charges to dispute.Another thing you can do is go to http://xpressmailpe.cingular.com/ and log in to your xpress mail account.Go to SETTINGSGo to MY DEVICES and click EDITDelete your device from the list (delete all of them.)
I believe this should also work for halting all SMS trigger messages since you'll no longer have a device to send them to.You can always go back in the future and re-register your device from your phone and set this all back up again in the future.I hope this clears up the "SPAM" conspiracy theory.

This issue occurs when you uninstall XpressMail from your phone without turning off the Push function first. You should only receive a max of 4 messages after doing this.
There is a fix, while not convenient. It still works. You can re-install XpresMail, turn off push, and then uninstall.
My question is, are you receiving more than 4 after you uninstalled it?
