VoIP how-to’s: Configuring and accessing voicemail via phone

wsi imageoptim VM

To initially set up voicemail, press the “message” key on your phone (or dial * and ext. number if you have a poly 301 or 320), and enter your password, which by default matches your extension number. At this point, you will be guided through the process of a first time set-up. Follow the prompts to set up your name, greetings, and new password. You should change your password when prompted to something other then your extension. If you leave your ext. number as your password, each time you access your VM box, you will hear the set up wizard again, so we highly recommend changing it. Also, your name that you record in the mailbox will be the same recording callers here when they access the Company Directory and Find Me feature.
