    Okay, I have an Iphone 4s running on 5.1.1 and two days ago I sent a photo from my phone via Messaging app to my Gmail email account, but I never received the Email. I started receiving text messages from my girlfriend as if it were being sent from my email account.

    In addition to this every message I receive from anyone is received as if it was sent from my Email account, but occasionally it will also send it like it was sent from them instead of my Email.

    I've completely removed my Email multiple times, and made sure I had it nowhere in my contact information and the problem has yes to be solved.

    In addition to everything mentioned, absolutely every one of my contacts can see every message I send.

    Every message I send to any contact gets sent out to every single contact I have.

    If anyone has any idea what's happening help would be greatly appreciated.

    It sounds like you might be using your email for your iMessage(text) address. If I message goes down and people text you it will default to your email. Go to settings, Messages, Send & Recieve, and see if your email is there. If so simply delete it. It might not be immediately fixed though because if people have been I messaging to your email address and they keep sending texts through the old thread it will still go to email. You will need to ask those people to delete your messages you have sent them and then it should work as normal. Confusing to type out, but if you can follow what I'm saying I'm almost 100% sure it will fix your problem.

    Hope that helps!
