Hi. I heard Kim give a tip as to how to forward my I message to my e mail address for filing purposes.
I have been unable to do this.
I went to Kim’s website and typed in ‘forwarding I message to e mail’ and was instructed to go to settings > messages> forwarding text messages, but I have no such setting on my I pad under the above config settings.
THEN I tried going to the message I wanted to forward, and holding my finger down until little boxes appeared on the left of each portion of the message, Ticked each box I wanted to save, then pressed the little right facing arrow at the bottom of the screen, entered my e mail address and still the message did not send. What am I doing wrong?
It seems you are going through the correct motions, I wonder if the messages and ending up in your junk mail or spam folder. Could you try forwarding to an alternative email address as a test, also let us know who your phone carrier is as this could be an underlying issue if they are a smaller carrier. Lastly here is what Apple has to say.
Thank you, John.
Actually, I am trying to forward my text message from my i pad I message to my e mail address, to save the I message in my mail files.
I think I have successfully done this before but cannot seem to make it work now!
IOS 13.4.1 I pad
In settings I can only set ‘ you can receive messages aNd reply from the following address.. I put my principle e mail address here.
I went to my address book and found another e mail address of mine, but for some reason I cannot figure out how to add it to my I message addresses.
When I type it in, in I message as if to send a message,the e mail address turns red, and the message will not send. Any message.not just a forwarded message.
Nothing about forwarding either on my I pad or otherwise.
FINAl answer.. cannot forward texts ( I messages) to an e mail address from I pad.
Could only copy the portions of the message desired and paste onto a new e mail and send it to yourself.
