We are really excited to release a feature that we know many YouMailers have been waiting for. Extra Line is a second inbound phone number for your phone. This feature has two settings. You can have calls to this second number go straight to voicemail or ring your phone just like your primary line.

    1. Hi there, Jennifer!

      If you’re still interested, now you can receive/make texts and calls from your Extra Line!

  1. Extra line details that extra line will notify you which line is calling. How is this notification done? I ask because I am blind and use an iPhone with Voice Over text to speech. I want to make sure of accessibility. Thanks.

    1. By ringing your cell phone and doing a trick to have the phone recognize the call is coming from an extra line. Since we rely on Apple’s caller ID mechanism, it should be 100% accessible to visually impaired users.
