My wife sent a text to me but it arrived as an email from (herphone#)@msg.telus.com. Has this happened to anyone else? What would cause this?

Haven't seen that one in some time. What phone / operating system do each of you have and what app are both of you using to send and receive texts?

It may happen in some instances where in the email app, the sender chooses your phone number from the contact info, rather than an email address.

 

Email to text has been a staple of telecommunications for ages, and many folks use it all the time. I used it while on the road between myself and desk-bound colleagues for many years, as it was dead easy for them too send a short email to be received as a text on my phone.

We are both using android on a Samsung and whatever message app came on automatically.

Thanks. That may be what happened - but the other way around - text to email.
