Forward Text messages sent to iphone 6 (verizon) to email account

I have an IPHONE 6  with the mail app configured for my office 365 enterprise email account.  Works fine.  On my windows 8 laptop, I have outlook 2013 configured for my email.  Works great.
I use my outlook inbox as a kind of todo, reminder list.  
Lots of my clients text me and though I receive text messages I don't always respond to them right away.  I'd rather not keep scrolling through my text messages to see if there is one I didn't respond to after reading....so.
I'd like to find a way to integrate my received text messages into my outlook.   That way I could delete them if I've already responded, etc.   I don't need to send text messages from outlook (I know iphone uses IMESSAGE intead of SMS but I can switch to SMS if needed).  
Is there any 3rd party or built in solution out there?  Even a way to forward iphone received text messages to my email address?

you are not alone and that seems a common requirement for iOS users.

Thanks
Though none of those really are a direct solutionquestion, it got me to a solution that will work for me
Verizon has an APP called "verizon messages" which I installed on my iphone and a pc desktop app where text messages go to and from both places.  So this will work for me.
Thanks for responding!
