Junk Text Messages

    The below poster is correct (I started this thread and talked to CS last
    night.) Supposedly, changing "Allow Messages Sent from Email? Y/N" will
    block junk text messages that were sent as email. The only problem is, no
    one else can send you a text message from their computer whether it's to
    yourphone#@vtext.com or youralias/name@vtext.com. If that's the only option
    turned off, you should still be able to receive text messages sent from
    another phone and the vtext web page. I activated it (turned it off) last
    night, I'll post the results in a few days when I find out if it's working
    or not.
