Accessing Unity Voicemails from Outlook

Voicemail received in Unity will also be by e-mail to your Walters State E-mail Address.

They will appear in the INBOX just like normal messages.

Below is an example of what an opened Unity voicemail e-mail looks like:

The example above can be identified as a Unity voicemail because the sender will contain "Unity Messaging System",

The subject will contain "Message from" and there will be a "VoiceMessage.wav" attachment.

Note: The extension or the full phone number of the person who left the message will be placed in the subject line.

To listen to a voicemail open the "VoiceMessage.wav" attachment.

Note: Be sure the computer speakers are turned up a little higher because most of the time voicemails have a lower volume than most audio played by a computer.

Managing Your Voicemails

After listening to a voicemail you can delete it or move it into a folder but if you do it will also DELETE THE VOICEMAIL FROM THE PHONE. However, deleting from your phone does not affect Outlook.

WARNING: Storing a lot of voicemails in your e-mail is not advised. As doing so will quickly exceed your mailbox limit. Save messages in Archive Folders or Save the voicemail attachments to your hard drive.

Please note that Archive Folders and saved attachments are not automatically backed up. Save any IMPORTANT voicemails to your M: drive or network storage.
