This document lists the requirements for creating a new voice mail security code for Centrex users.

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.

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.
