Forward all incoming and outgoing calls and messages from one iPhone to another iPhone

I have two iPhones: one is a personal iPhone and one is a work iPhone.

I would like the work iPhone to be able to make both outgoing and receive incoming calls, iMessages, and SMS messages from the personal iPhone. Simply put,

I want the personal iPhone to be sitting at home (and turned on) and not really in use, while the work iPhone can handle everything the personal iPhone can do, while the work iPhone functions normally under a separate number.

Why not use eSim on the work iPhone?

Not able to because it’s a corporate phone.


Let me try to break this down into separate parts:

Incoming calls

We should be able to just enable call forwarding on the personal iPhone to forward all calls to the work iPhone.

Incoming and Outgoing iMessages

If both work and personal iPhone share the same Apple ID, then the work iPhone can receive all personal iPhone messages. iMessages can also be sent from the number / Apple ID that the message was originally sent to, so I’m not concerned about that.

Incoming and Outgoing SMS / MMS

Since the introduction of Continuity (and cellular continuity), text messages can also be forwarded to another Apple device, and that same Apple device can send new messages from that number.

enter image description here

Outgoing calls

Now, this should work by enabling Wi-Fi calling on the personal device, and then adding Wi-Fi calling for other devices. Again, my doubt is whether that other device can include a second iPhone on that same Apple ID.


Actual question

So, my question is: When Apple uses the phrases “you can forward texts to another Apple device”, and “Add WiFi-calling for other device”, does that other device also include another iPhone, especially an iPhone with active service already?

In other words, how do your cellular services work when you have two different numbers under the same Apple ID?

why are outgoing text message bubbles colorful?

Why are speech bubbles either blue or green for outgoing messages and not for incoming messages?

For example, in whatsapp, the outgoing messages are green. In iMessage, they are blue. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a messaging app where the outgoing message bubbles are grey and the incoming ones are coloured. Is there a reason for this?

Good outgoing firewall? [on hold]

Back in the olden days, in the Windows world, there was an outgoing firewall called ZoneAlarm that would tell you what program was trying to access what IP address and let you choose to block it or not.

What is the best equivalent today for the Mac? I know there is Littlesnitch but ideally I’d like an open-source program.

how to setting BCC outgoing email for mulitple sender address to multiple address bcc with postfix

Hi i had the zimbra email server (using postfix for MTA system). I want to setting BCC outgoing email for multiple sender address to mulitple address bcc.

I try follow step pre below URL on topic “Sender BCC Maps”

https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/Email_redirection 

at directory /opt/zimbra/postfix/main.cf insert

sender_bcc_maps = lmdb:/opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/sender_bcc 

at directory /opt/zimbra/postfix/sender_bcc insert

a@domain.com sale@domain.com b@domain.com sale@domain.com c@domain.com sale@domain.com a@domain.com hr@domain.com b@domain.com hr@domain.com c@domain.com hr@domain.com 

then i’m postmap the file sender_bcc insert

postmap /opt/zimbra/postfix/sender_bcc 

show warning “duplicate entry

postmap: warning: /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/sender_bcc_maps.lmdb: duplicate entry: "a@domain.com" postmap: warning: /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/sender_bcc_maps.lmdb: duplicate entry: "b@domain.com" postmap: warning: /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/sender_bcc_maps.lmdb: duplicate entry: "c@domain.com" 

You have any idea for setting multiple sender address to multiple address bcc ?

thank you for your advice and sorry for bad english.

Limit number of recipients in To: and CC: on emails outgoing with ASSP

Too many Mail Service Providers, such Hotmail, Google, has limitations about number os sender into To: CC: and BCC: headers of mail messages.

I’m not finding a possible configuration, in ASSP.

The closest, but not 100%, with this situation, would be, LocalFrequencyInt and LocalFrequencyNumRcpt located in the documentation itself

Is there another way to block this unhealthy practice of putting hundreds of emails in the To: field?

Can a Bitcoin node create an outgoing connection to a inbound node?

I’m trying to figure out if we can create an outgoing connection to a inbound node (a node which we are already connected to, but the remote peer has initiated the connection). I know that this does not make much sense since we exchange information to inbound and outbound nodes. However, I have looked at the source code and did not find the code that prevents a node from doing that. Is anyone out there more successful?

Postfix not sending mail using specific outgoing ip address

I have a cluster set-up using pacemaker/corosync and have some fail over IPs set-up. I have designated postfix to use ome of those failover IPs using:-

smtp_bind_address = aa.bb.cc.dd

in main.cf

However, when I send a test mail to my google a/c I’m receiving the mail from actual server ip address instead of the ip address above.

Does anyone know what could be causing this please?

Many thanks

Tons of mail windows opened because of no preferred outgoing server

I don’t use mail normally. So today when I open my app, this caught me by surpriseenter image description here

I selected one of the server and then close the mail window, but there are just so many to go through.

My questions:

1) The email are seemingly created based on some of my calendar events. Why they tried to send me emails?

2) How can I efficiently close all these windows in one go, instead of making a selection of outgoing server than close a mail window?

I have tried to quit the mail app from its context menu of the Dock, but it just forces one of the mail window to the foreground.

Cannot use a secondary IP for outgoing traffic

I have a server (Ubuntu 18.04) with multiple IP address in the same network device.

This is the ip a return:

1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000     link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00     inet 127.0.0.1/8 scope host lo        valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever     inet6 ::1/128 scope host        valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 2: ens3: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP group default qlen 1000     link/ether 06:9b:1c:00:00:2a brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff     inet 191.XXX.XXX.51/23 brd 191.XXX.XXX.255 scope global dynamic ens3        valid_lft 80087sec preferred_lft 80087sec     inet 179.XXX.XXX.0/32 scope global ens3        valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever     inet 179.XXX.XXX.1/32 scope global ens3        valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever     inet 179.XXX.XXX.2/32 scope global ens3        valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever     inet 179.XXX.XXX.3/32 scope global ens3        valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever     inet6 fe80::XXX:XXX:XXX:2a/64 scope link        valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 

And this is my route -n return:

Kernel IP routing table Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface 0.0.0.0         191.XXX.XXX.1   0.0.0.0         UG    100    0        0 ens3 191.XXX.XXX.0   0.0.0.0         255.255.254.0   U     0      0        0 ens3 191.XXX.XXX.1   0.0.0.0         255.255.255.255 UH    100    0        0 ens3 

So I have a main public IP: 191.XXX.XXX.51 and 4 more secondary public IPs: 179.XXX.XXX.0-3

My final goal is to use my secondary IPs for outgoing connections, I think that I can achieve this using routing tables or iptables, but I don’t know how.

For example: If I ping google.com:

user@server:# ping google.com  PING google.com (216.58.202.142) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from gru06s29-in-f142.1e100.net (216.58.202.142): icmp_seq=1 ttl=57 time=1.01 ms 64 bytes from gru06s29-in-f142.1e100.net (216.58.202.142): icmp_seq=2 ttl=57 time=1.05 ms 64 bytes from gru06s29-in-f142.1e100.net (216.58.202.142): icmp_seq=3 ttl=57 time=0.965 ms 64 bytes from gru06s29-in-f142.1e100.net (216.58.202.142): icmp_seq=4 ttl=57 time=0.993 ms ^C --- google.com ping statistics --- 4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 3004ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.965/1.005/1.055/0.050 ms 

Everything works fine, but if I choose another IP to be the source of the ping:

ping -I 179.XXX.XXX.1 google.com 

The ping has 100% packet loss.

The same happens with tinyproxy, if I configure to use the secondary IP as outgoing IP the connection just fails.

PS. The secondary IP works if I ping them from outside the server.

So how can I make the secondary IP useful to reach the Internet?
