    There are several posts about how to turn this off in previous versions of the Samsung Galaxy phones. I see no option to turn this off on the S6.

    Welcome to Android Central! From what I understand, open the stock Email app, tap Menu>Settings, select the email account, and turn off Sync SMS Messages.

    I called Samsung support and they remotely did this

    On your SG6, open the inbox of the exchange account.
    Click on "More" on the top right corner
    Select Settings
    Select the Account (again)
    Scroll all the way down to Sync Messages under Sync Task
    Turn that off
    Test it by sending an email to that account to confirm you still receive emails and then test by sending a text to yourself and see if the text also goes to your email.

    Let me know if it works for you

    For S6 Edge
    Click on your email app
    Click on more (top right hand corner)
    Click on settings
    Select respective Microsoft Exchange Email Account
    Scroll down to the bottom
    Disable Sync Messages (This stops the SMS messages NOT the email messages)

    Sorry to bump this old'ish thread but this is my exact problem...here's the issue, I don't have a "sync SMS messages" tab... I have one tab regarding any messages, It's just ALL messages so if I turn it off my biz email doesn't sync. I just tested. Help?

    How can I turn off the SMS messages in Outlook Inbox on my Galaxy S6?-screenshot_2015-06-30-21-03-09.jpg

    When I go into the Exchange email account and click on "More" the only option it gives me is 'Edit" (deleting messages, etc.) There is not a 'Settings" option

    didn't work for me. I have "sync messages" off, and i'm still getting texts in outlook. I even removed and re-added the activesync account to my phone (galaxy s 6 edge), and made sure "sync messages" was unchecked during the initial account setup process.

    I'm on the latest OS of the S6 (not - edge) and there is only sync calendar, contacts, email and task. Not messages. What to....do? For now I've made a rule in my work account to move phonenumber senders to a junk=like folder.
