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. Don’t worry if you choose to forward calls to your primary line we will let you know which line was called.

Extra Line is available with the Premium and Business plan. You can upgrade to one of these plans here and check out all the other features these plans have to offer.

    1. Hi Ernst, at this time we do not have a feature to schedule when your second number goes to voicemail but you can easily set it to that through the YouMail app whenever you need to.

  1. Is there a way to have my second line phone number show up on caller ID when I call someone that I don’t want to have my main number?

    1. Hi Joe, at this time we do not offer that feature but thank you for letting us know that this is something we can add to our list!

      1. Has this feature since changed? I was on live chat with support and they said that I can make outgoing calls from extra line and that the caller ID would show up as my extra line #

      2. What are you thinking changed? If you have an iPhone, you can make outbound calls through the app, and the caller ID will reflect the number of your extra line. Are you saying it’s not doing that?
