How about this from the link: "For the Samsung Galaxy S8+, click on your email icon, then the triple lines in upper left hand corner, then the settings gear in upper right, then touch your email address at the top, then scroll to bottom & make sure the Sync Messages is not on."

That's not the issue. It's every text message, not just a few.

What Messaging application are you using for Texting?  Is it possible there is a setting to forward/copy each text message to an email address?  Or, maybe, Outlook has a setting for receiving all text messages to the phone number associated with the phone.  There is a discussion on syncing SMS messages with Outlook here: sms - How to stop receiving text messages in Outlook - Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange

Using Samsung texting. I can't find any settings on outlook that say anything about text messages. The option to forward to email does not exist on messages.
