Does a text message stating intent to give written notice to vacate a rental count as legal written notice in WA state? Posted on January 19, 2011

We have a renter whose lease is up 1/31/11. He sent us a text message saying that he was going to put his notice in and needed our address. As of today he still hasn't sent the letter. In the lease it states that he must give us 30 days written notice or he is responsible for the next month's rent. Can we legally bill him for February's rent, or does the text message count?
