Greetings, Name and Passcode

When you first set up your mailbox, you recorded a greeting and your name and selected a passcode. The user options menu allows you to change these at any time. You should update your greeting(s) regularly - for example, to let callers know whether you're in or out of the office.

Please note: You may not have access to Conditional greetings, depending on how your mailbox is configured. Consult your System Administrator for more information.

Distribution Lists

A distribution list allows you to record a single message and then send it to a large number of people without addressing them each individually. You can use distribution lists whenever you make a message, or give a message to someone else.

Creating or Modifying a Distribution List:

1. Press 5  or the Dist Lists softkey from the user options menu.
2. Enter the number of the distribution list, ensuring the first digit is always zero (0).
3. Press 6  to record a name for the distribution list (e.g., "product planning committee"). The system will play this name each time you address messages to this distribution list.
4. Press 2  to add members to the list; press 3  to drop members.
5. Enter the numbers or names of users you wish to add or drop.
6. Press 7  if you would like the system to play back the list of members you have selected.
7. Press 9  to exit to the main menu.

Please note: All personal distribution lists must begin with the number 0.

Using a Distribution List

Instead of entering a mailbox number, enter the number of the distribution list you want to use. The system reads back the number of the distribution list.
