Stop SMS Text Messages appearing in Outlook Inbox

Oct 14, 2014 by Emma Robinson

I recently set up a new Android phone and connected it up to Office 365 using ActiveSync and all of a sudden the phone’s text messages were appearing in the users Outlook client.

To stop this from happening you simply need to disable the Sync SMS feature on your Android phone (Which seemed to be enabled by default on this model).

To disable the Sync SMS feature:

  1. Open the Email Account settings on the phone
  2. Disable the Sync SMS feature

Seems simple really, but it took me a while to find that setting – hopefully, this saves someone else some time.
