1. Pull down from the top of the screen
2. Click the gear wheel to get to settings of the phone
3. Go to "Apps" section
4. Go to email app and click it
5. scroll down to permissions and click it
6. turn off the SMS permission, you will get a warning, click ok
Get to the last bit where it says deny permission for SMS. When you click on this it comes up with " If you deny this permission, basic features of your device may no longer function as intended " What does this mean, what functions may not work ?
Just got the Note 8 and had the same issue. I was able to fix it.
