- I erased a message, can I get it back?
- Yes. If you have not ended the voicemail session, you can press 7 to recover messages marked for deletion.
- I am going on vacation and don't want any messages left in my mailbox while I am gone?
- Go into your mailbox and create a greeting in the out-of-office greeting section. Then call the Telecommunications Office at x5565 so the class of service on your mailbox can be changed to block incoming messages. Make sure that your greeting includes an option for them to call someone else.
- My telephone is in a shared office. The call is for someone else on this number. How do I transfer them to their voicemail?
- With the caller on the line, press TRANSFER or FLASH, dial 7000, enter your extension and hang up. The caller will be connected to the callers menu on that extension and be able to leave a message for the correct person.
- I have just listened to a saved message and still want to save it. The system does not ask me to save it again, how do I continue?
- At the end of the message, press 7 and you can skip to the next message. It will leave the saved message in the saved portion of your mailbox.
