    I don't know if you can attach an email. From what i can tell you choose either the email address or phone number
    and send the test as normal

    I found it. Under settings. Messages. You can add email there.

    you can use your Apple ID or can add any email as well. I do not know if there is a limit but I have put in 3 email addresses.

    You can add them at Settings->Messages-> Received at->Add Another email

    Facetime has the same type of setting as well.
