Associated Numbers - This feature allows multiple phone numbers to share the same voice mailbox. If a caller attempts to call any of these phone numbers, that subscriber's one VMS mailbox will play its greeting. This allows the subscriber to have to manage only ONE mailbox for all of these associated phone numbers. Up to a possible 9 phone numbers can share 1 voice mailbox.

Auto-Login - This feature will allow you quick access to your mailbox when you are calling from the voice mail phone. You get immediate access to your Voice Mailbox without being asked to enter a User ID or Password. Ideal for those that are not concerned with the security features and want quicker access to their voice mailbox. Can be turned on/off as desired.

Daily Notification - This feature allows you to set up a time of the day to notify you that you have a new voice message. On the days that you do not have any new messages, the service will not give you a notification call.

Distribution Lists - This feature allows you to group different lists of mailboxes. Example: If you wanted to send a memo out to everyone in your Sales Dept., instead of sending it to each individual, you can set up a list of people in that dept. and simply send it to the Sales Distribution List and it will automatically be sent to everyone listed in that department.

E-mail Notification - This feature allows you not only to store your messages in your voice mailbox, but it also converts the Voice Message into an E-mail.
