    I am recently converted from iOS to Android (Samsung S6, Lollipop). I think I got everything figured out, except for one particularly annoying thing that I cannot seem to fix: every time I receive a text message (in the native Messages app) I also receive an email with that same text. As a result, my inbox is filled with dozens of texts every day. How do I switch this off? I tried everything! (Well, except the one thing that will stop it.)

    Welcome to the forums. Is there an option in Settings of the messaging app to send a copy to your email?

    It sounds like you may be using Google Voice for text messages since you can reply via email as well.

    Also, it might be a carrier setting. Which carrier do you use? Log into your account on the web and see if there is a setting there to send an email for each text message.

    I definitely agree with Almeuit and Diddy.

    My Google voice does that, but not the native app, unless I synced it with GVoice trough Sprint.

    Go to Email > More > Settings > Click on the account > Scroll down and uncheck "Sync Messages"

    Fixed it, thanks to suggestion #6 - thanks so much, Carl! I understood the "sync messages" to be referring to email messages and therefor did not untick. They should use clearer lingo.

    He's lying--he actually is Carl Sagan. And he answers billions and billions of posts ...
