Anyone can reach you on iMessage via phone number or email addresses. It depends on the device you have. More often, you can be reached at the phone number linked to your iPhone, and also your Apple ID locked email addresses. It is not necessary but can add extra email addresses from where you can send and receive iMessages. Although it doesn’t mean that this iMessage ID is active.

Sometimes it happens that one of the iMessage email addresses in the Messages preferences on my Mac is not activated. That’s why you don’t receive messages sent to this address. Make sure you have activated all email addresses you want to use with iMessage, check out both your Mac and iPhone settings.

On your device click on Settings > Messages > Send & Receive > and look through “you can be reached by iMessage at.” On this stage you should make sure all the email addresses you use for iMessage on your other devices are active on this device as well.
