Voice Mail (Centrex) - Security Code Requirements
Choosing a strong security code is an important part of protecting your access to University information technology resources. Voice mail security codes must be a minimum of 4 digits and less than 15. Six digits is strongly recommended.
This document lists the requirements for creating a new voice mail security code for Centrex users.

It is also recommended that voice mail security codes:
- are kept private.
- are changed twice per year to something new and different than earlier security codes.
Other voice mail security features:
- A temporary security code is assigned when a voice mailbox is established. Mailbox owners are forced to change the temporary security code when they first access their mailbox.
- DoIT system administrators do not have the ability to view subscriber security codes.
