What Is YouMail?
YouMail is a visual voicemail and call blocking app that sets a new destination for your voicemail messages. We give you the ability to view, listen to, and organize your voicemail messages from any device that can connect to the internet. Additionally, YouMail blocks unwanted robocallers, scam calls, and telemarketers.
“Visual Voicemail” refers to the way you are able to view your voicemail messages. Much like the layout of an email inbox, your voicemail messages are stored in a neat, ordered list. Not only do we store your voicemail messages, but we provide voice-to-text transcriptions as well. The transcription allows you to review the contents of the voicemail, even when the audio is not an option.
YouMail is also leading the field in blocking spam and robocalls. YouMail has a patented "Smart Blocking" technology which combines call patterns from billions of calls and feedback from millions of users to block unwanted calls. Once a call has been determined as spam, YouMail greets these calls with a "Number out of service" greeting discouraging them from calling again. We identify and block numbers daily to fight off the growing scourge of spam. For more information please visit our Call Blocking page.

How Does YouMail Work?
YouMail works by entering a forwarding number via your carrier’s “Conditional Call Forwarding” (also known as call forwarding busy, no answer, or unavailable) setting. A phone number with “Conditional Call Forwarding” enabled will ring normally and only forward the call if you do not answer, if your phone line is busy, or if you cannot be reached. When a call is forwarded, the call is sent to our YouMail voicemail system where we play your designated voicemail greeting and deposit the message in your inbox.
