Why doesn't ##########@vtext.com work anymore?

I used to be able to send text from my email to my phone by entering the phonenumber@vtext.com.

But not anymore.  According to Verizon's vtext.com page, you should be able to do this:

Text to mobile phone from E-mail, send and receive text messages from any email address in the world by addressing the email to your 10 digit mobile number, number@vtext.com, or your customnickname@vtext.com.

I haven't had any issues doing this; are you getting an error message, they just don't go through, what?

You haven't added a block to your line regarding texting from the web, have you?  That's the only thing I can think of.  I just tried it since it had been awhile since I'd sent one, and I had no trouble sending a text to myself from my e-mail.

I'm not sure how you would block it. If I knew how, I'd check. Thanks.

If you don't know how to check about the block, then I doubt that you've set it up.    Here's how, if you need it:

log into your on-line MyVerizon account

click on the blue More Actions (under I Want To)

click on the blue Block Internet Spam (under Safety & Security)

at the top of the page, choose line/phone, if applicable

at the bottom of the page, ensure that both check boxes are unchecked under Message Blocking Preferences

They are not checked. Guess I'll go to the store later.

Good luck.  The only other thing I can think of is if you're sending photo texts; if so, then you need to use vzwpix.com rather than vtext.com

It works if I send a picture to vzwpix.com, but not vtext.com.

I may be misunderstanding you ... you send a picture message to vzwpix.com and it goes through?  Wahoo, it's working as it should!

If you send a picture message to vtext.com, it doesn't go through?  Well, it's not supposed to ... you can't send picture messages to vtext.com

Or are you saying that you still cannot send a text message (with no attachments) to vtext.com?
