anyone know what is causing this or how to fix it?
Are you sharing an Apple account with someone else?
I might have figured it out, I think my received at (in messages settings) had my email checked along with my phone number.
No, I don't think that's it. Received at means that anyone can iMessage you to either your phone number or your email. This seems to be a current iOS 8 bug that will send out an iMessage using your email instead of your phone number. You can be in the middle of a conversation and it happens.
Hopefully it'll be corrected soon.
ohhh its a bug, I didn't know that, wonder if it was fixed in 8.0.2
So question: What does putting a check mark next to your email in "received at" even do?
What is your "Start New Conversations From" set to?
It tells the device to receive any messages from that source. Example, if I send you an iMessage to your email, you will receive it on any device set to receive from that address.
Received at means that anyone can iMessage you by sending to either your phone number or your email.
Is it not a bug. What this guy said ^^^.
This happens to people all the time when they setup/restore a new device incorrectly. Go into message settings and make sure Start New Conversations From has your phone number and only your phone number checked.'
Receive can be set to phone number AND email addresses.
Ok, I guess my only option now in there is reached by imessage at, and my email/phone number are in there but my phone number is checked
It's a bug. He isn't the first person to mention it, and despite having your phone number set as the "Start New Conversations From" it has still been occurring randomly mid-conversation. This only started happening with iOS 8.0.
