How come when I message people from my mac/itouch it shows up as an email instead of an imessage? I've added my friends email addresses to their contact information but I still have multiple threads of messages from each person. Is there a way to have one consecutive thread for each friend, regardless of their device? And then do the same for when I message them?
This feature is coming in iOS6
This is happening because when you send an iMessage from your mac/touch it is sent from your email address. If you want to continue the conversation on your phone you'll have to add the email address to Settings>Messages>Receive At on you phone. Also, if you want to be able to continue a conversation started on your phone on on your mac/touch, you'll have to go to Settings>Messages>Receive At>Caller ID on your phone and set it to your email address. This way the conversation is sent from your email address on all your devices, an replys are sent to the same email address. This will be simplified with iOS 6 later this fall.
