Cisco VoIP - Replying and sending voicemail messages in the portal
How to reply and send voicemail messages in the voicemail portal
Reply to a Voice Message
Web Inbox can be used to send, reply to, and forward messages to subscribers, public and private distribution lists. Voice messages can only be forwarded to users with a voicemail account on the Cisco Unity Connection voicemail system. Please note this replies to the person's voicemail, not to their email.
When sending, responding or forwarding a message, the message may be marked as follows:
- Urgent: The message is sent before regular messages.
- Private: Alerts the recipient to treat the message confidentially and disables forwarding of the message.
- Read Receipt: The subscriber is notified when the recipient opens the message.
When listening to a message, Web Inbox presents options for handling the message.
Reply: Respond with a voice message to the sender.
- Reply all: Respond with a voice message to all who received the message and are Cisco Unity Connection subscribers.
- Forward: Send the message to another subscriber and/or distribution list. Messages marked private are restricted from forwarding.
- Delete: Move the message to the Delete folder.
- Mark unread: Mark the message as unread. This presents the message as new.
Use the volume control bar to control playback volume when playing the message back through the computer.
