When forwarding emails to SMS I only get the subject?

Hey all! I'm trying to get certain emails from work forwarded to my phone as texts since I don't have my computer with my at all times and prefer not to upload my entire work mailbox to my personal device. However, all I get is an alert saying I have the email with the subject line, and no content. Can anyone possibly advise?

Thanks!!

How are you forwarding the emails? Which format of the phone number's email address are you using?

I just set it up in Outlook to forward emails from specific people (my bosses), and I put myphonenumberhere@vtext.com for the address. It pops up on my phone, but I only get a text message with the subject line, I can't read it.

That explains it. You are using the SMS email address and it is restricted to 160 characters and doesn't support special characters. You should try the MMS email address "number@vzwpix.com" instead.
