Out Dial (Transfer to Another Number)
This allows the caller listening to a Voice Mail greeting to transfer to another local pre-programmed number. Example: “Leave a message or press zero to be connected to my office phone”.
Out Dial Administration
Allows you to manage your own Out Dial number. You simply call the Voice Mail administration number and access the setting within your mailbox setup.
You can choose either the English or Spanish language for your phone interface (applies to menus and prompts that you hear). Selection is made the first time you log into your voice mailbox but can be changed at a later time.

Recording Messages (Caller)
If a call is forwarded to Voice Mail because the line is busy, the system announces, “The party you have reached is on the phone” before playing your custom greeting.
Edit Message allows the calling party to listen to their message, re-record their message, append to the end of their message or to cancel the message. After the custom greeting callers will hear, “When you are finished recording, press # for further options or simply hang up”.
When leaving messages, callers have the option to tag their message as:
Urgent – Message will be played to you first (before other regular messages).
Private – Message cannot be forwarded.
Acknowledge – When the message is retrieved, notification is sent back to the caller.
