Voicemail

When an extension is created, a Voicemail box tied to that extension is automatically created. Voicemail boxes that do not have an extension associated with them are created and administered exclusively through Destinations=>Voicemail. There are three locations in the IP PBX that allow management of a voicemail box:

  • Destinations=>ExtensonsUnder the Advanced Settings section, the basic settings for the mailbox can be configured.
  • Destinations=>VoicemailThis area allows for total configuration of the voicemail box, including features like Broadcast and Cascading Message Notification.
  • Smart Personal ConsoleGives end users the ability to configure some mailbox settings.
