It turns out YouMail has this feature where they let you forward voicemails from other services to your YouMail account - so you can get them transcribed or pick them up on their iPhone and Blackberry visual voicemail applications.
That used to work with OOMA. You'd just change your e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org (if your phone number was 415-666-7777). Now it looks like they're not allowing this any more - you get an error when you try to save the number.
There are simple work arounds (just forward to another address that forwards to the YouMail number, which I've done).
But does anyone know more? Can anyone from OOMA comment? Any reason you're not allowing people to take advantage of much better voicemail than you guys offer?
