Need Messaging app that supports unique Message alerts by contact for Samsung Galaxy Note 3

For myself in the IT industry, it is commonplace to have server monitors send a text message via ###-###-####@vtext.com from an e-mail address. We want a different tone/alert for a server down than normal texts. This was trivial in WinMo. Are there any Android messaging apps that are advanced enough to be able to do this?

These do not work:
1 The Samsung Messages app will show as coming from the proper contact, but it will only trigger the default Message tone/Message alert. This is because the Server Alert contact doesn't have a phone number.

2. The Verizon Messages app (Message+) DOES NOT USE the "Message tone"(S5) / "Message alert"(Note 3) property in Contacts, nor is there a way to set up a contact-specific tone/alert in Message+. The best you can do is a conversation-specific tone/alert, and never delete the conversation.

Thanks!

Have you tried Hangouts? Or ChompSMS or Handcent?

I've seen a similar issue before and the problem is always the text coming from an e-mail address instead of a number. If the server sent out an e-mail alert, however, you could do that with labels and filters through the GMail app, but if this is a text, well...
