I understand how frustrating this is. 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

I thought I was the only person wishing Samsung would do something about this. Every weekend like clockwork I get some text sent from an email address. This is not only annoying I feel violated because I can't make it stop.

If you go into the messages app and tap the 3 dots at the top right> Settings > Block Numbers and Messages > Caller ID and spam protection and turn it on.

Alternatively just get thr Truecaller app, it filters spam and warns you if others have marked it as spam, and has a built in report numbers and links feature, and allows you to block numbers individually.
