Hey Samsung,

 
Can you add a setting in Samsung Messages to allow users to block spam text messages coming from emails? You already have the option to block numbers. But for those that are getting inappropriate text messages from email sources are only able to simply delete the conversation. They can still continue to receive text from those emails. Can you add Spam Protection like Google Messages offers? (For those that don't want to have to download a different messaging app)

Hey,

The only option for blocking these types of messages is to call your carrier tech support and ask if they can block them for you. I did this a year ago and haven't received any since.

Best regards,

There should also be an option that prompts you when you're deleting a text message to also block this number do you have that

I've only seen it the other way around. After selecting to Block a text conversation, it will ask if you want to Delete it as well.
