Txt Msg Forwarding - Help! Is it even possible?

Hey Folks,

Is there any way to set up "mail rules" or "mail filters" on the BB for Txt Messages? Is there an app out there anywhere that might do this?

Essentially, I want every txt msg that comes in to my # to also get forwarded to an e-mail inbox. My carrier is Verizon, and I've called twice now - they can't do much to help.

Any ideas? Thanks again very much in advance!

I haven't seen rules for SMS Text messages. Maybe someone else knows if it is possible.

Yes, if you use Webmessenger's Message Alerts, you can forward SMS text to an email. I do not work for them, but I have it on my Curve and love it! It does everything with emails and text that the standard BB OS cannot do. Here is a screen shot of an option, when you get an incoming SMS, you can create a rule that will forward it as an email that you define.

In all honesty, I've posted this question on a few forums.  This is the first time i've gotten a response other than "Nope, you're out of luck"!  Looking forward to giving this software a try.  Thanks for the help Rick.  I'll post how it goes here when I'm done!

Installed and up and running!  I've done some limited testing, and as far as I can tell this prog is just as you said Rick -

 

Awesome! 

 

Does exactly what I want it to do, and more in the form of mail rules, filing, deleting, etc. Rocking the 15 day trial right now and will jump on the full version as long as I don't see any bugs in the upcoming days. 

 

Thanks again Rick!

I have an HTML reader application and through it I forward text to email, but I have to do it by hand to each message.
