    Help, send txt to email address

    On my old (non smartphone) I was able to send a text message to my email address. I simply went to contact and chose my email as the recipient. Now, in the Thunderbolt, when you go to messages and contact list it doesn't even show you anything entered in the email field. I was going to enter the email address as a phone number but when entering a contact it doesn't give you a QWERTY keyboard to enter with.

    Any ideas on how I can send a text message easily to an email address?

    Thanks

    I just sent one to myself, same way as Bnb did. New message, entered my email address, wrote the text and send. Worked fine.

    Yes, I can type in the address every time but that is a pain. What I want to be able to do is select it from a list. Email addresses are not a choice when you go to messages and then contacts

    Text app looks for contact information that is tagged "Mobile"
    So no mobile tag, no drop down.....

    Problem Solved

    Just wanted to update here in case anyone had the same issue. I found out today why it wasn't displaying the email address as one of the options when selecting a contact to send a text message to.

    I had to go into messages>menu>settings>Recipient list settings> then check the box next to "Show email address, include email address in recipient search results"

    Now the email address shows up as an option to choose when selecting a contact to email.
