    I have peoples emails saved to their contacts in my phone. When I send a text it is auto correcting words to contacts email addresses. Is there a way to stop this from happening?

    I hope there is, it's so annoying. I've searched for the answer and came up empty.

    It has to learn your habits. I reset my device today completely and then got that to happen as well

    There was a thread about this a month or two ago. No one has the answer. It's so annoying. I've actually deleted contacts just to reduce this from happening.

    Happening to me too. I seem to recall it starting about a month or so ago. Quite irritating.

    I know this problem did not happen with Verizon based Galaxy S3, Note 2, Note 3, or Note 4. I checked in Messages and Contacts settings and didn't see an obvious way to disable or change this unwanted behavior.

    Go to the keyboard settings and turn of predictive text.

    I'm afraid you are right. In my view a bit of a letdown that an option does not exist to choose whether or not emails should receive an SMS. Now that I think about it, can an email address receive an SMS text?

    I am using the stock SMS app and the only time I get an email address when inputting a name in the recipient box is if that name in the stock Contacts app has no phone number and only an email address.

    Good find, I think that may be part of what I'm seeing. In my case when I input one of my family member's names into the stock Messages app, the first letter of her name will "invoke" her email address. As I mentioned above, not sure if SMS messages can be sent to an email address.

    I'm considering going to SwiftKey in hopes that will work better for predictive text, and dictionary - if I don't lose any Note or S-Pen specific features that are embedded in the stock Messages app.

    You will get faster learning with SwiftKey but you will lose all the special features of the stock keyboard such as access to and selection of all of the clipboard snippets.
    I don't believe that MMS can be sent to an email address. Though I am sure there are folks here that know about this.

    Go to Google keyboard and then under setting go to auto correction and unchecked suggest names from contacts.
    Hope that helps

    The way to fix this is to do a long press on the email address in the predictive text bar. Then the Samsung keyboard will ask you if you want to remove that particular email address from your dictionary. Tell it yes. It will keep happening for each email that fits your predictions, but eventually they will be removed from your personal dictionary. I love Swiftkey, and used it for years, but went back to the default keyboard on the Note 5 because it's the only way to properly use the S-pen. I would be a happy camper if Swiftkey could somehow add that functionality.
