I reply and invite the senders server company, eg; abuse@hotmail.com, also abuse@youtube.com, abuse@google.com, as they own YouTube,abuse@att.net, my provider. I don't add abuse at a link I don't recognize as they usually are in on it. You can also add abuse or help at FCC.GOV. My Norton which is PC version doesn't stop these. I am going to buy Norton's Mobil Version today. If it doesn't stop it, I will return it. The FCC has ordered the Cell Phone Companies to put a stop to this and Spoofying.

Google messages allows you to block individual emails from texting you and has a built-in spam blocking feature that helps.

Your phone number has email capabilities. Google messages can block those types of messages.

T-Mobile – number@tmomail.net
Virgin Mobile – number@vmobl.com
AT&T – number@txt.att.net
Sprint – number@messaging.sprintpcs.com
Verizon – number@vtext.com
Tracfone – number@mmst5.tracfone.com
Ting – number@message.ting.com
Boost Mobile – number@myboostmobile.com
U.S. Cellular – number@email.uscc.net
Metro PCS – number@mymetropcs.com

Text message - Compose a new email and enter the recipient's 10-digit wireless number, followed by @txt.att.net. For example, 5551234567@txt.att.net.
Picture or video message - Compose a new email and enter the recipient's 10-digit wireless number, followed by @mms.att.net. For example, 5551234567@mms.att.net.

I agree google has help for this, yahoo, also and I have AT&T also they are not much help recently got Norton on my mobile they have been the most helpful of all! I think they will help you with your issue took 2 days to get my mobile lined out " severely hacked" really love ex girlfriend think you will be happy with their service as for me the cost is minimal for piece of mind an help when you need it.

Good afternoon, I definitely get how frustrating spam texts can be. Spam text messages received from emails are sent to you as SMS messages through your cellular carrier's email to text gateway. If you do not need to receive SMS messages from email accounts (some automated alerting systems may use this method), then contact your carrier and ask them to disable that at their gateway. You can also use this link for information on how to report these messages. https://bit.ly/3paGP7I

Does Google messages block the messages coming from the regular message app for Samsung? The blue one not red?
