When she sends a text, it shows up as coming from my email account which is associated with my iTunes account. Does she need her own iTunes account?
No, but you need to add another Receive At email addess for Messages and delete the Apple ID email address. Go to Settings>Messages>Receive At to do that.
I've tried to do that but it won't let me delete my email address, and when I try to add hers I get "an error occurred while verifying your email". I know that her address is correct so I don't understand what's going wrong.
Thanks for your help.
