I would like to send a text message to an e-mail address using Messaging on Samsung S4. I have already done it before as a test, but I cannot get it to do it any longer.
How to enable this feature again?

I hope this helps you. It is a test that will help you determine if you can send SMS to email. Open your regular text messaging app and type a text like you normally would, but in the 'To', field enter your email address. Send one to yourself first to see if it works.
There is also a carrier specific ones can use. For example My phone is a Boost phone:
Here's a more general answer for someone who's looking to do this from any carrier. There are apps that can do such a thing. If you're looking to just send future texts straight to email, there are apps like SMS to Phone/Mail. For those who want to backup any SMS/MMS from the past and either print, convert to PDF, or email you can use an app like SMS Backup Print & Restore. The second one here has a pro version as well.
Alternatively, you can automate this process through apps like Automate or Tasker. Those are definitely for more advanced users though.
