Enrolling as a Cisco Unity Connection User

About Enrollment
Your first step in using Cisco Unity Connection is to enroll as a user, which you do by phone. Typically,
Connection is set up so that you hear the first-time enrollment conversation when you call the system for the
first time.
The first-time enrollment conversation is a set of prerecorded prompts that guide you as you do the following
tasks:
• Record your name.
• Record a greeting that outside callers hear when you do not answer your phone.
• Change your PIN.
• Choose whether to be listed in the directory. (When you are listed in the directory, callers who do not
know your extension can reach you by spelling or saying your name.)
Typically, your Connection administrator gives you an ID (usually your desk phone extension) and a temporary
PIN.
At any time after enrollment, you can rerecord your name and greeting, or change your PIN and directory
listing status.

If you are calling from another phone within your organization or from outside your organization, press *
(star key) when Connection answers.
Respond as prompted. You do not need to refer to any Connection documentation during enrollment. The
system will tell you when the enrollment process is complete.
If you hang up before you have enrolled completely, the first-time enrollment conversation plays again the
next time you sign in to Connection.

About the Connection Conversation
When you access Cisco Unity Connection by phone, you hear the Connection conversation. Its recorded
instructions and prompts guide you as you send and receive messages, record greetings, and change your
preferences. You can use any phone to access Connection.
There are two ways in which you can use Connection by phone:
Phone keypad
Press the keys on the phone keypad.
Use this option when it is not important to have both hands free, when you are in
an environment with significant background noise, or when you want more
Connection feature options.
Voice commands
Speak into the phone handset, headset, or speakerphone.
Use this option when you want hands-free access to the Connection system.
Note
Some TTY phones (text phones) do not have the capability to send the appropriate tones. In this case,
TTY users may need to use the phone keypad when navigating the Connection conversation.
Using the Phone Keypad with the Connection Conversation
There are several versions of the Connection conversation, each providing different keypad mappings for the
Connection menu options. (For example, you might press 3 to delete a message in one version but press 7 to
delete a message in another version.)

Working with Cisco Unity Connection by Phone
Using Voice Commands with the Connection Conversation
Your Connection administrator determines the conversation version that you hear. Typically, an administrator
will select a conversation that has a keypad mapping that is familiar to you. Ask your Connection administrator
which conversation you are set up to use.

Cisco Unity Connection Phone Menus and Voice Commands, page 85
Using Voice Commands with the Connection Conversation
Cisco Unity Connection provides a voice-recognition option that lets you say what you want to do in the
Connection conversation. Voice commands are intuitive, easy to use, and available for most voice-messaging
tasks.
Procedures in the User Guide for the Cisco Unity Connection Phone Interface describe the voice commands
you can use, or you can say "Help" at any time to get more information on any menu.
At the Main menu, you can access a set of tutorials on working with voice commands by saying "Tutorial."
You can say commands at most points in the conversation—you do not have to wait for the system to finish
a prompt. In addition, if you know exactly what you want to do, you can say more complex commands without
having to navigate through a hierarchy of menus to accomplish a task. For example, you can say, "Send a
private and urgent message to Tina Chen" at the Main menu.
If you are not comfortable saying commands or you are in a situation where your commands are not recognized
by the system (for example, you are on a mobile phone where there is background noise), you can switch to
using only the phone keypad for the remainder of the call. To turn off voice commands, say "Touchtone
conversation" or press the applicable key at the Main menu. Your Connection administrator can tell you the
key, or you can say "Touchtone command Help." To switch back to using voice commands, hang up and sign
in to Connection again.
For select commands, you can press the applicable key without turning off voice commands. Your Connection
administrator can tell you the commands and the corresponding keys, or you can say "Touchtone command
Help."
Your Connection administrator determines whether the voice-recognition option is available to you.

You can call Cisco Unity Connection from your desk phone, from another phone within your organization,
or from outside your organization.
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
Dial the applicable number to call Connection.
If you are calling from another phone within your organization or from outside your organization, press *
(star key) when Connection answers.
If prompted, enter your ID and press # (pound key).
Enter your Connection PIN and press #.
Note
If you use the voice-recognition option, Connection may prompt you to say your PIN or to enter it
on the phone keypad. To say your PIN, speak each digit individually. If Connection is not able to
recognize your PIN on the first attempt, you must enter it on the keypad. (For security reasons, you
may want to enter your PIN on the keypad rather than say it; this option is always available to you.)

Sending a Voice Message by Using the Phone Keypad
Sending Voice Messages
You can send voice messages to other Cisco Unity Connection users without dialing their extensions. This
can be helpful when you do not want to disturb a user or when you do not have time for a phone conversation.
Sending voice messages may also help to avoid misunderstandings that can be "read" into email messages.
You can address a voice message to one or multiple recipients, and to private and system distribution lists.
Depending on the input style you are using, you address a message either by saying the name of a Connection
user or distribution list, or by using the phone keypad to spell the name of the user or list, or to enter the
extension or list number.
The following special delivery options are available:
Urgent
Mark a message urgent so that Connection sends it before regular messages.
Return receipt
Request a return receipt so that Connection notifies you when the recipient opens
the message.
Note
You may or may not receive receipts in response to your requests,
depending on how your recipient's and your voicemail accounts are set
up. And when you do receive receipts, they can be either read receipts or
delivery receipts, again depending on how the voicemail accounts are set
up.
Private
Mark a message private so that the recipient knows to treat it confidentially.
Connection users cannot forward private messages by phone.
Future delivery
Deliver the message at the future date or time that you specify.
Sending a Voice Message by Using the Phone Keypad

Tip
• While addressing the message, press ## to switch between spelling and number entry.
• To address the message to a private list, enter the list number by using number entry, or, if the
list has a display name in the Messaging Assistant web tool, spell the name by using spelling
entry.
• When more than one user matches your addressing entries, Connection plays a list of matches
that you can navigate quickly. Press # to select a recipient from a list; press 7 to skip to the
previous name and 9 to skip to the next name; and press 77 to skip to the beginning of a list and
99 to skip to the end of a list.

You can check new and saved messages in your Cisco Unity Connection mailbox by phone, as well as messages
in your email application.
You can save or delete messages during message playback or after you listen to an entire message.
Ask your Connection administrator if the system is set up to enforce a message-retention policy and, if so,
how long it stores your messages before permanently deleting them. (Connection does not indicate when a
message-retention policy is enforced, nor does it warn you before messages are permanently deleted as a result
of such a policy.)

Managing Receipts
Revised November 16, 2010
As you work with Cisco Unity Connection, you may manage the following types of receipts:
Read
Receipt message that informs you when the recipient plays your message.
Delivery
Receipt message that informs you when your message was delivered to the intended
recipient.
Nondelivery
Receipt message that informs you when your message could not be delivered to
the intended recipient.
Although you can request only return receipts in the Connection phone interface, you may be able to specifically
request read or delivery receipts by using an email application. Note that you may or may not receive receipts
in response to your requests, depending on how your recipient's and your voicemail accounts are set up. And
when you do receive receipts in response to your receipt requests, they can be either read receipts or delivery
receipts, again depending on how the voicemail accounts are set up.
When you check messages, Connection plays receipts along with your other messages. You play and delete
receipts in the same way as other messages; you cannot reply to or forward them.
For read receipts, Connection plays a list of the recipients who played the message you sent. For nondelivery
receipts (NDRs), Connection identifies recipients whose mailboxes did not accept the message.
After Connection plays an NDR, you can hear the original message and resend it to the recipient(s) who failed
to receive it. You can record an introduction, modify the recipient list, and change delivery options when
resending a message. Once you resend the message, Connection automatically deletes the NDR.

About Finding Messages
Cisco Unity Connection offers three options for finding messages by phone:
Message Locator
Allows you to find new and saved voice messages based on search criteria.
Phone View
Allows you to find new and saved voice messages based on search criteria,
then displays results on your Cisco IP phone screen.
Go to Message
Allows you to find a saved message based on the message number.
Not all of these options may be available to you. Check with your Connection administrator.
Finding Messages by Using the Message Locator Option
With Message Locator, you find voice messages from a particular user by entering the name of the user or
the extension. You can also find voice messages from all outside callers or messages left by callers who called
from a specific number.
Based on the criteria that you enter, Cisco Unity Connection begins playing messages as they are found. By
default, messages are presented in order of newest to oldest—regardless of whether the messages are new or
saved—though your Connection administrator may change this playback order.

About Deleted Messages
Cisco Unity Connection saves your deleted messages; you can play, restore, or permanently delete them.
Permanently Deleting Deleted Messages
Deleting messages can be an important way to reduce the size of your mailbox, especially when Cisco Unity
Connection is not set up to automatically delete messages once they reach a certain age.
Ask your Connection administrator if the system is set up to enforce a message-retention policy. Connection
does not indicate when a message-retention policy is enforced, nor does it warn you before messages are
permanently deleted as a result of such a policy. If Connection is not set up to do so, make sure that you
permanently delete messages periodically.

Managing Dispatch Messages
• About Dispatch Messages, page 27
• Responding to Dispatch Messages, page 27
About Dispatch Messages
Dispatch messages are sent to a distribution list of users who are available to respond to issues. Only one
person needs to accept a dispatch message. After Cisco Unity Connection plays a dispatch message, it provides
the following options:
Accept the message
Means that you are the only member of the distribution list who will accept the
message. Copies of the message are removed from the mailboxes of all other
recipients, whether they have listened to the message or not.
Decline the message
Means that the message is removed from your mailbox, but copies of the message
remain as unheard in the mailboxes of other recipients who have not yet declined
the message.
Note
Postpone the message
If all other recipients have declined the dispatch message, you must
accept it. You will not be allowed to decline the message.
Means that the message remains as an unheard message in your mailbox and
in the mailboxes of the other recipients who have not yet declined the message.
Responding to Dispatch Messages
Note the following considerations about responding to dispatch messages:
• If another recipient accepts the dispatch message before you accept it, your copy of the message is
removed from your mailbox.
• When you decline a dispatch message, Cisco Unity Connection does not move it to your deleted items
folder.
User Guide for the Cisco Unity Connection Phone Interface (Release 8.x)
OL-21232-01
27
Responding to a Dispatch Message by Using the Phone Keypad
Responding to Dispatch Messages
• Dispatch messages trigger the message indicator on your phone. If another recipient accepts a dispatch
message, Connection turns off the indicator after it removes the message from your mailbox. There may
be a window of time between message removal and the indicator going off. If you find no new messages
after noting the indicator, it likely is because you checked during this window.
• When configuring message notification rules to include dispatch messages, be aware that by the time
you receive a notification and call in to retrieve the message, it may be gone from your mailbox because
another user has already accepted the message.

Using Voice Commands to Place Calls
• About Using Voice Commands to Place Calls, page 29
• Placing Calls by Using Voice Commands, page 29
About Using Voice Commands to Place Calls
You can place a call to a contact or to another Cisco Unity Connection user by saying the person's name, or
phone number or extension.
For example, when you say "Call Harriet Smith," Connection finds the extension for Harriet in the corporate
directory and places the call. When you say "Call Mom at home," Connection finds your mother's home phone
number in your contact list and places the call.
To place calls by using voice commands, you must be signed in to Connection. This feature can be useful
when you are checking messages and want to place or return calls.
After you say a name, phone number, or extension, Connection plays a matching name or number and places
the call. If Connection finds more than one match for a name or number that you requested, the first match is
played and Connection will ask you to confirm whether the match is correct. If not, say "No," and Connection
will continue to play the other matches.
Placing Calls by Using Voice Commands
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2

Managing Personal Greetings

• Turning Your Alternate Greeting On or Off, page 37
• Changing Greetings, page 38
• Playing All Greetings, page 40
• Recording Greetings in Additional Languages with a Multilingual System, page 41
About Personal Greetings
Cisco Unity Connection allows you to record up to six personal greetings. You can turn on as many greetings
as you want, and you can specify how long you want the greetings to stay on.
With a multilingual system, you have the option of providing your personal greetings in multiple
languages—your default language and other languages available on your system. Note that you use the phone
keypad to manage greetings in languages other than your default language; you cannot use voice commands.
The six personal greetings and how they work are described below. Note that Connection plays the greetings
that you turn on for the applicable situation, while some greetings override other greetings when they are on.
Standard Greeting
This greeting plays during the business hours that your Connection administrator specified for your organization,
or in other situations when no other greeting is on.
By design, the standard greeting cannot be turned off.
Closed Greeting
Turn on this greeting when you want your callers to hear a recording from you during the nonbusiness hours
that your Connection administrator specified for your organization. (For example, "Sorry, I am not available
to answer your call. Company office hours are <times>.")
When it is on, the closed greeting overrides the standard greeting during nonbusiness hours.
Alternate Greeting
Turn on this greeting for a specific time period when you want to provide information about special
circumstances, such as when you are on vacation. (For example, "I will be out of the office until <date>.")
User Guide for the Cisco Unity Connection Phone Interface (Release 8.x)
OL-21232-01
35
Rerecording Your Current Greeting by Using the Phone Keypad
Rerecording Your Current Greeting
When it is on, the alternate greeting overrides all other greetings.
Your Connection administrator specifies whether the system transfers callers to your greeting without ringing
your phone, whether callers are able to skip your greeting, and whether callers can leave you a message when
your alternate greeting is on. The Alternate Greeting page in the Messaging Assistant web tool indicates the
caller options that your administrator has enabled for you, if any. Note that caller options do not apply when
an outside caller or another Connection user dials your extension directly.
Tip
Other Connection users do not hear your alternate greeting when they send messages to you by phone.
When you turn on your alternate greeting, consider also changing your recorded name to include information
that you are out of the office. Your recorded name plays when users address messages to you and when
callers look you up in the directory.
Connection may play a prompt to remind you that your alternate greeting is on after you sign in by phone.
Busy Greeting
Turn on this greeting when you want callers to know that you are on the phone. (For example, "I am currently
on another line, please leave a message.")
When it is on, the busy greeting overrides the standard, closed, and internal greetings when your phone is
busy.
Note that not all phone systems provide the support necessary for the Connection busy greeting to work. For
assistance, talk to your Connection administrator.
Internal Greeting
Turn on this greeting when you want to provide information that coworkers might need to know. (For example,
"I will be in conference room B until noon today.")
When it is on, the internal greeting overrides the standard and closed greetings, and plays only to callers within
your organization when you do not answer your phone.
Note that not all phone systems provide the support necessary for the internal greeting to work. For assistance,
talk to your Connection administrator.
Holiday Greeting
Turn on this greeting when you want callers to hear a recording from you during a holiday. (For example,
"Happy holiday. I am not available to answer your call. I will be out of the office from <date> to <date>.")
When it is on, the holiday greeting overrides the standard greeting during nonbusiness hours.

Connection plays a greeting that you record.
Note
System Greeting
Recording a greeting does not turn it
on.
Connection plays a prerecorded greeting along with your recorded name
(for example, "Sorry, <your name> is not available"). If you do not have a
recorded name, Connection uses text-to-speech to read your display name
instead. When a greeting is on but not recorded, Connection plays a
prerecorded system greeting.
You can turn off a greeting at any time. When a greeting is off, Connection no longer plays it, though the
recording is not erased.
Tip
If you record a personal greeting then set the greeting to use the system greeting, your recording is no
longer available by phone. Record and enable a new personal greeting.

Recording Greetings in Additional Languages with a
Multilingual System
With a multilingual system, you have the option of providing your greetings in multiple languages. For
example, if Cisco Unity Connection is set up to provide prompts in French and Spanish, you might record
your standard greeting in both languages so that Spanish- and French-speaking callers can hear your greeting
in their own language.
If you do not record a greeting in a language that your system provides, Connection will play the system
greeting for calls associated with that language. For example, if you recorded your standard greeting in French
but not in Spanish, Spanish-speaking callers would hear the system greeting for you, while French-speaking
callers would hear the French greeting that you recorded.
Note that when you select a language in which to record a greeting, Connection plays the Greetings menu

About Private Lists
You can use private lists to create your own groups of voice message recipients. When you address a voice
message to one of your private lists, all of the recipients on the list receive the message. Cisco Unity Connection
provides several private lists for you to personalize.
Only you can send voice messages to your private lists. You can do so by using the phone keypad or voice
commands. You cannot send messages from your email application to your private lists.
Creating Private Lists
Your Cisco Unity Connection administrator specifies the maximum number of lists that you can manage. The
lists are prenumbered. Once you have added names to a list, Connection plays the list number as an identification
when you manage your lists.
Tip
Although you can create private lists by phone, it is easier to do so in the Messaging Assistant web tool.

Changing the Members of Private Lists
Changing the Members of Private Lists
The maximum number of members that you can add to a private list is specified by your Cisco Unity Connection
administrator. Any user or system distribution list that is included in the directory can be a member of your
private lists.
Depending on how Connection is set up at your organization, you may be able to send and respond to messages
from users on remote voice messaging systems who are not in the directory. If so, you can also include these
users—known as remote contacts—in your private lists.
If you try to add a user, system distribution list, or remote contact that is already a member of the private list,
Connection does not add the member to the same list again.
You can add members to, and review and delete members from your private lists.
Note
Administrative changes to private list members may cause them to be presented differently when you
review your lists later. Occasionally, administrative changes may even cause some members to be removed
from your lists without notice. Your Connection administrator should be able to inform you before changes
occur, though you will still need to re-add these members to your lists in the event that they are inadvertently
removed.

Managing Your Addressing Priority List
• About the Addressing Priority List, page 53
• Changing Your Addressing Priority List, page 53
About the Addressing Priority List
Your addressing priority list directs Cisco Unity Connection to prioritize recipients that you define, similar
to a "buddy" list. When you are addressing a message and Connection finds multiple matches for a recipient
name based on partial spelling or on how you say the name, any matching names that are also in your addressing
priority list are presented first. This allows you to find and select your intended recipients more quickly.
Connection may also automatically add recipient names to your addressing priority list when you send messages
to them, and adjust the priority of names in the list based on how often you send messages to each recipient.
Note
Your Connection administrator determines whether you can review and modify your addressing priority
list, and whether Connection automatically adds names to the list based on usage.
Changing Your Addressing Priority List
You can add users, contacts, and distribution lists to your addressing priority list, review the list, and remove
names from the list. Your addressing priority list may also contain names that Cisco Unity Connection has
automatically added based on your message addressing history.

About User Preferences
User preferences control the information about you as a user on the Cisco Unity Connection system and some
of the choices you make for interacting with the system.
Changing Your PIN
Your Cisco Unity Connection PIN protects the privacy of your messages and secures your mailbox from
unauthorized access. You can change your PIN at any time.
Follow the security guidelines provided by your Connection administrator when you change your PIN. In
general, shorter passwords are easier to use, but longer passwords are more secure, especially when you
specify a nontrivial password. A nontrivial password means that:
• The password cannot contain your primary extension or its reverse.
• The password must contain at least three different digits.
• The digits cannot all be consecutive in ascending or descending order (for example, 12345 or 54321).
• A digit cannot be used more than two times consecutively (for example, 14777).
• The password cannot contain repeated groups of three or more digits (for example, 408510408).
• The password cannot be a numeric representation of your first or last name, or the combination of your
first and last names. (For example, if your name is John Doe, you could not use a numeric representation
of johnd, johndoe, jdoe, doe.)

Changing Your Alternate Devices
You can add information about alternate devices that you use—such as a mobile phone, a home phone, or a
phone at another work site—to your Cisco Unity Connection preferences. This makes calling Connection
from an alternate device more convenient because the system recognizes the number and behaves the same
way as when you call from your primary extension.
You can have up to ten alternate devices. Your Connection administrator may also add alternate devices for
you, in addition to your primary extension. (When you access the system by phone, Connection does not list
administrator-defined alternate devices. You can, however, view them in the Messaging Assistant).
Note
When you sign in from a phone number that is not listed in your alternate devices, Connection may ask
whether you want the number added. If you choose to add the number, Connection will recognize it and
behave the same way as when you call from your primary extension. If you choose not to add the number,
Connection will not ask again about adding it.
You can add or delete alternate devices by phone.

Managing Call Transfer Rules
• About Call Transfer Rules, page 63
• Changing Settings for Call Transfer Rules, page 64
About Call Transfer Rules
Call transfer rules control how Cisco Unity Connection handles incoming indirect calls, which are from callers
who do not dial you directly (for example, callers who use the directory to reach you). For direct calls—when
outside callers or other users dial your personal phone number to reach you—your Connection transfer settings
do not apply.
You can choose to answer indirect calls, or you can have indirect calls routed immediately to voicemail.
Tip
To set up call transfers for direct calls to your extension, talk to your Connection administrator. Your desk
phone or even the phone system that your organization uses may offer transfer features that you can use
to manage direct calls.
The three call transfer rules and how they work are described below.
Standard Transfer Rule
This transfer rule is active during the business hours that your Connection administrator specified for your
organization. If no other transfer rules are turned on, the standard transfer rule is active for nonbusiness hours
as well.
By design, the standard transfer rule cannot be turned off.
Alternate Transfer Rule
Turn on this transfer rule for a specific time period when you want to override the other transfer rules. For
example, you may want to route all your calls immediately to voicemail while you are out of the office on
vacation or you may want to transfer your calls to a different extension if you are temporarily working from
another location.
When it is turned on, the alternate transfer rule is always active. It overrides all other transfer rules.
Closed Transfer Rule

Changing the Settings for a Call Transfer Rule by Using the Phone Keypad
Changing Settings for Call Transfer Rules
Turn on this transfer rule to set how indirect calls to you are handled during the nonbusiness hours that your
Connection administrator specified for your organization. For example, you may want to route all your calls
immediately to voicemail during nonbusiness hours.
When it is turned on, the closed transfer rule is active during nonbusiness hours.
Changing Settings for Call Transfer Rules
You can choose to have indirect calls ring your extension, or another extension or phone number that you
specify, or be transferred immediately to voicemail, so your phone does not ring at all. (When you send calls
to voicemail, callers do not have to wait while your phone rings unanswered. Your greeting plays immediately.)

(To transfer calls to an external phone number, contact your Connection administrator.)

voicemail. Connection transfers calls to your transfer number only if you also specify that Connection
transfer your calls to a phone.

Managing Your Alternate Contact Numbers
• About Alternate Contact Numbers, page 67
• Changing Your Alternate Contact Numbers, page 67
About Alternate Contact Numbers
Alternate contact numbers allow you to offer callers the option to transfer to other numbers by pressing a key
as they listen to your greeting. An alternate contact number can be the extension for an operator or for another
user (such as a supervisor or coworker), or any other number where you or another person can be reached.
Your Cisco Unity Connection administrator determines which keys callers can press to transfer to alternate
contact numbers; you may be able to specify up to 12 alternate contact numbers (one for each key on the
phone keypad).
Changing Your Alternate Contact Numbers
To specify an alternate contact number outside your organization, begin with any access code needed to make
an external call (for example, 9). For long-distance numbers, include the applicable dialing codes (for example,
1 and the area code).
Tip
When you specify an alternate contact number, you may want to update your greetings to include the
information (for example: "I am away from my desk right now. Leave a message at the tone, or press 4
to transfer to another sales representative.").

About Personal Call Transfer Rule Sets
You set up personal call transfer rule sets so that Cisco Unity Connection transfers particular calls to you
according to caller identity, time of day, and your meeting schedule, or transfers your calls to voicemail or to
another phone number. Personal call transfer rules are more advanced than the basic transfer rules—standard,
alternate, and closed—which allow you to configure basic transfer settings.
You manage your personal call transfer rule sets in the Personal Call Transfer Rules web tool. Once rule sets
have been defined, you can enable them in the web tool or by phone. (For more information on how you use
and manage personal call transfer rule sets, see the User Guide for the Cisco Unity Connection Personal Call
Transfer Rules Web Tool.)
Enabling and Disabling the Use of Personal Call Transfer Rule
Sets by Basic Transfer Rules
Cisco Unity Connection uses personal call transfer rules to process your calls only when the active basic
rule—standard, alternate or closed—is configured to apply personal call transfer rules instead of the basic
settings.

process calls even if your basic transfer rules are configured to apply personal call transfer rules. In that case,
calls will be transferred to your extension.

About Broadcast Messages
Occasionally, you may receive a voice message known as a broadcast message from your Cisco Unity
Connection administrator, network administrator, or management personnel in your organization. Broadcast
messages are recorded announcements sent to everyone in your organization. For example, your Connection
administrator may send a message asking all users to change their PINs, or a Human Resources manager may
send a message reminding employees about a deadline for a new benefits package.
Connection plays any broadcast messages immediately after you sign in by phone. You must listen to each
broadcast message in its entirety before Connection will allow you to check your new and saved messages or
to change your setup options. Once a broadcast message has been played, it is permanently deleted for you.
You cannot respond to or save broadcast messages.
Broadcast messages do not trigger the message indicator on your phone (for example, a light or a distinctive
dial tone when you pick up the receiver).
If you are using the voice-recognition option, you cannot use a voice command to delete a broadcast message.
Instead, you are prompted to press # when the message is finished playing. Once the message is deleted, you
can continue using voice commands to play and manage other messages.

Managing the Size of Your Mailbox
• About Mailbox Size, page 83
• Reasons Your Mailbox May Fill Up Quickly, page 83
About Mailbox Size
A full mailbox can affect the speed at which Cisco Unity Connection processes your messages. When you
sign in by phone, Connection notifies you when your mailbox is:
• Almost full.
• Full and you can no longer send new messages.
• Full and you can no longer send or receive new messages.
Your Connection administrator sets the storage limits for your mailbox. Exceeding those limits can prevent
you from sending and receiving messages.
Note
Broadcast messages are not included in your total mailbox size.
Reasons Your Mailbox May Fill Up Quickly
If you feel that your Cisco Unity Connection mailbox fills up more quickly than you expect, the reasons listed
below may explain why. (Your Connection administrator specifies the size of your mailbox.)
Message-retention policy may not be enforced
By default, Connection does not automatically delete messages once they reach a certain age. This means that
unless your Connection administrator set up the system to enforce a message-retention policy, you are
responsible for managing the size of your mailbox by periodically reviewing your saved messages and either

If Connection is set up to enforce a message-retention policy, ask your Connection administrator how long
the system stores your messages before permanently deleting them. You can then plan to archive or move

Managing the Size of Your Mailbox
Reasons Your Mailbox May Fill Up Quickly
important messages ahead of time. Connection does not indicate when a message-retention policy is enforced,
nor does it warn you before message are permanently deleted as a result of such a policy.
Nondelivery receipts are included in total mailbox size
When you receive nondelivery receipts (NDRs) for messages that you send, your mailbox can quickly increase
in size—especially when original messages included large attachments.
Total message size includes original when messages are forwarded
You may receive messages that have been forwarded many times over, which increases message size. The
original message plus all recorded introductions that were added during forwarding equal the total message
size. As a result, your mailbox can exceed its limit, even though you may have relatively few messages stored
in it.
Total message size includes attachments
You may receive messages that contain attached files such as spreadsheets, documents, faxes, and pictures.
The message plus all attached files equal the total message size. As a result, your mailbox can exceed its limit,
even though you may have relatively few messages stored in it.
