When a voicemail is left on your extension, an email is sent to you containing:

  • Subject line stating the calling number if an internal extension or “unknown caller” if an external caller or internal extension without voicemail
  • An audio file (.wav) of the message left on your voicemail.

Play the audio file to listen to your voicemail message.
