Keeping up with your calls and voicemail messages is one thing when you’re out of town. It’s a completely different kind of hassle when you’re out of the country.

Especially for small business owners, realtors, and other professionals – keeping clients happy is a very important part of the job. But you’re allowed to take vacations! As long as your clients know you’ll be away for a week and they can correspond with your assistant in the meantime, there shouldn’t be a problem. But let’s face it – even with all the preparation, you’re still going to feel anxious about not having a way to listen to your voicemail.

Fortunately, with YouMail you can access your voicemail messages from wherever you are. Enjoy your trip and know that you’ll still be able to get all of your important messages.

Here’s how you can still get a grip on your voicemail even when you’re out of the country:

  1. Visual Voicemail – The easiest way to get all of your voicemail messages from anywhere. Just log on to and sign into your account. All of your voicemail messages and missed calls will be available to you. Click on any message to listen to your voicemail and even reply to them by email or text.
  2. Voicemail-to-Email – With Voicemail-to-Email you can access your voicemail messages straight from your email account. When you’re on vacation and have some free time to check your email, you’ll also be alerted of any voicemail messages from clients or colleagues. Turn on Voicemail-to-Email here.
  3. Auto-Forwarding – Don’t worry about not being able to reply to voicemail messages. With Auto-Forwarding, you can automatically send your voicemail to your assistant’s or colleague’s email address. They will be notified of your new voicemail message, be able to hear its contents, and respond to your client for you. This feature is only available as part of the YouMail Business Plan. Get it here. If you already have YouMail Business, go here to turn on Auto-Forwarding.
  4. Status Greeting – To not deal with voicemail at all while you’re on vacation, use Status Greeting. This will tell you callers the second they reach your voicemail greeting that you’re out of the country. Clients will know to follow up with another person at your office. Status Greeting is only available on the YouMail Business Plan. If you already have YouMail Business, you can set up your status here.

Next time you plan a trip, don’t stress about taking care of voicemail messages when you’re away. With YouMail, you’ll be able to get to all of your messages and even respond to them!
